Crocus Special Needs Association January – March 2018 Programme

Here are the details of the Crocus Special Needs Association January – March 2018 Programme. Members meet fortnightly at the Galgorm & Gracehill Community Centre. They are really looking forward to a packed programme of events when their Special Buddies Youth Club re-opens after the Christmas break.

Crocus Special Needs Association January - March 2018 Programme

Crocus Special Needs Association ‘is a Christian based voluntary organisation which values and supports people with disabilities, their families and carers, by demonstrating through word and deed God’s great love, compassion and care for everyone.’
Crocus volunteers achieve this aim by operating the SNAPS (Special Needs and Parents Support) group. This group meets every Wednesday, (term time), from 10:00am to 12noon. Open to toddlers with special needs and their parents, this weekly event takes place at Tullygarley Community Centre.

The Special Buddies Youth Club is aimed at young people aged 11 years upwards. It affords each of its members the opportunity to enjoy a range of activities and experiences.
Just to give you a flavour of what they do, here is their ‘events list’ for the first few months of 2018.
