Hipp!!Bones is a charity run targeted youth club for young people with learning difficulties, disabilities, Autism or additional needs aged 11 to 19 years, although we can continue to accommodate young people up to the age of 25 years.

We offer three longer sessions during the school holidays for off-site trips. All sessions provide opportunities to socialise with their peers in a safe supportive environment and participate in arts and crafts, cooking, and sports activities; alongside sensory activities, air hockey, pool, and the Nintendo Wii which are always available. There is a tuck shop available to enable young people to develop money skills and increase independence through making choices.
