Youth Groups

Kepplewray is passionate about working with young people and helping them fulfil their potential. We encourage them to be respectful of others with differing abilities, to take care of the community they live in and be successful through their own choices and decisions.

The Kepplewray Experience provides an opportunity for young people to:

  • Expand their horizons,
  • Develop their communication skills whilst working as part of a team
  • Progress their social skills and have fun. All of which will have a positive impact upon their level of confidence
  • The Kepplewray Centre offers both able bodied and disabled people, the fantastic opportunity to participate fully alongside their peers in a safe and secure environment with fully qualified instructors.

Our ethos is "Realising Everyone's Potential" through:

  • Strong relationships
  • Empowerment
  • Recognising the need that everyone, whatever their ability, should be able to fully participate in activities.
