Thursday night might just be a normal week night to you and me but for some it is the highlight of their week! Currently running at Pylands Wood Community Centre in Bursledon, but will shortly be moving to YMCA Woolston Community Branch, the NGS (Next Generation Socialisation) Club is a truly inspirational and amazing youth club created for those with Autism and learning difficulties to offer them an environment they can feel comfortable in.
NGS is currently an Eastleigh Borough Council run scheme however from the end of March unfortunately the funding is stopping. Here at the YMCA we feel so passionately about the importance of offering this group that we are going to take over the running and funding of it ourselves. By moving it to our Woolston Community Branch we can ensure it keeps going, to support this wonderful group of young people. When told that the club may close one of the regular visitors said:
Well rest assured Tom, you are now part of the YMCA Family!
