ACE Youth Groups
ACE Youth is our Active Community of Empowered young people aged 10-18.
We co-ordinate seven inclusive youth groups in East Dunbartonshire, Fife and Angus for any young person of any ability living in these local authority areas.
Best Friends and Flaming Wolves are our two ACE Youth groups in East Dunbartonshire, which are funded by the Big Lottery Fund Scotland Young Start programme.
Our youth groups offer young people a place of friendship and shared experiences. They celebrate diversity, ability and individuality.
For young people who have a learning disability, these groups play a significant role in supporting them to feel valued and included in their community.
On top of team sports, group games and activities, our youth groups offer our young people something distinctly different. Our youth co-ordinators bring an educational focus to meetings, encouraging discussion and group work on campaigns for an equal society for every person who has a learning disability.
By sharing and understanding a common cause for an equal society, the young people are part of a mission. Each week they never fail to inspire us to be better and go further on behalf of every person who has a learning disability.
