Social Interaction Clubs

Weekly activity programmes for children and young people
Our social interaction groups provide weekly activity programmes for children and young people. Our staff and volunteers work with our social group members to encourage social interaction, communication, sensory integration and life skills.

The clubs offer participants the opportunity to join a structured group which meets their individual needs, and provide a safe environment for them to socialise in.

Social activities give the children and particularly the teenagers the chance to meet others who are interested in the same things. This can help them feel included and reduce their feelings of loneliness or isolation.

We hold a number of organised events every month such as ten pin bowling, cinema trips and annual events such as day trips to Tayto Park and Funderland. We also run Halloween, Easter and Summer camps for club members.

We currently have over 80+ children and young adults attending our social interaction clubs and associated activities.

If you are interested in becoming a member or joining the social interaction clubs, please download and complete the membership form, and email this to or telephone 061 405923 for any questions you may have on the process.
