We are the transitions project at Hammersmith and Fulham Mencap.
It is for young people aged 13-25 who have learning disabilities who live or study in the borough.
Our aims are to increase confidence, independence, and social interaction and to encourage positive aims for the future.
To achieve our aims, we have different sub-groups including ‘Find Out’ – our skills development sessions on Mondays 4-6pm during the term time at our centre. We look at different topics which our members choose such as ‘relationships and boundaries’, ‘staying safe in the community’ and ‘travel training’.
We also have lots of trips and activities in the school holidays. This is our ‘School’s Out’ programme and the members of the Steering Group decide where we go and what we do. Trips have included club nights, go karting, trips to Southend-on-Sea, museums and meals out.
Our Steering group is made up of SNY representatives who take responsibility to make decisions about SNY including planning trips and choosing topics for ‘Find Out’. There are also volunteering opportunities and chances to work with the Partnership Board and Safety Net People First.

Please get in touch if you would like to find out more or would like to get involved in any of our activities.
