ADHD Group

Brunswick Youth and Community Centre offers and ADHD group in partnership with the ADHD Foundation.

PLEASE NOTE: The ADHD group will start meeting on Wednesday 13 April 2016, from 6:30pm-8pm.

Brunswick Youth and Community Centre, in partnership with the ADHD Foundation, will provide support for children and young people (aged between 11-19), and their families, in the ADHD group.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (“ADHD”) is described on the Foundation’s website as:

one of the most common childhood disorders and it can continue through adolescence and into adulthood. Symptoms include difficulty staying focused and paying attention, difficulty controlling behaviour, and hyperactivity (over-activity).

At this FREE group members are given support to help them manage the condition. Among other things, young people in the group will:

  • learn about nutrition, with cooking sessions with fresh ingredients
  • take part in a range of sports sessions
  • get involved in activities to promote cooperative working and team work
  • have a safe environment to discuss issues that are affecting them.

We also provide respite and help young people develop accredited qualifications (e.g. Duke of Edinburgh).

Meetings will be every Wednesday at Brunswick Youth and Community Centre from 6:30pm to 8pm. (Click here for a map and directions.)

Why We Have This Group

Brunswick Youth and Community Centre is a registered charity. One of our charitable objects states that we are:

(I) to help and educate persons under the age of 25 years through their leisure time activities so as to develop their spiritual, mental and physical capacities that they may grow to full maturity as individuals and members of society and that their conditions of life may be improved.

Providing this group in partnership with the ADHD Foundation enables us to address these needs and help young people in our community.

This is just one part of our Children and Young People programme.
