The Portsmouth Teenage Project provides activities for young people aged 13 to 17 with a mild to moderate disability or special educational need who reside or are educated in Portsmouth. Portsmouth Teenage Project staff are trained to support young people and accommodate their needs during each activity, regardless of their level of ability, physical or otherwise. Before attending Portsmouth Teenage Project for the first time a home visit will need to take place to assess suitability.

We offer a varied programme of inclusive group activities in leisure, sport and recreation designed to allow young people to interact with their peers on a regular basis. A focus is on improving life skills for all young people including building confidence and independence, friendships and developing communication skills.
