youth hub

The Enable Ability Youth Hub is a service that was previously run by the Portsmouth Autism Support Network and as such is primarily designed for young people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders from 5 to 18 years of age.

The group meets every Thursday afternoon during term time, where service users can come along and interact with others, build friendships, take part in games and enjoy a regular social environment.

There is a rolling set of four activities which run from 4:30pm to 6:30pm during each month as follows:
