There was recently a survey done by the Torbay Children and Young People’s Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Sector Partnership. They visited Phab and we featured in their Update which went out to all the organizations locally that took part. This really is wonderful to read and is testimony to all at the Phab club for the work they do.
Here is an excerpt from the update…
“Me and Tanny had the privilege of going along (on pancake day, we lucked out…) to Phab Club – such amazing work going on there with young people with learning difficulties. So great to see the variety of activities, and the investment in long term relationships where young people move up through the project to eventually become volunteers. A brilliant example of co-design with young people.
The Ocean Youth crew were there, creating radio content with a group of very engaged young people who were clearly getting loads out of the session and taking part in social action.”
Here is the Live Broadcast from the Phab Junior night on March 13th – awesome.

We would like to thank Jackie Webb, Emily’s aunt, who, again, donated her Christmas card money to the Phab club. She very kindly has done this several times over the years.
Thank you so much

We are pleased to announce that the Phab Residential Holiday Projects 2019 are now open to applications!
These inclusive projects for disabled and non-disabled children, young people and adults take place at accessible centres in Hampshire and the Lake District and have an emphasis on building confidence, independence, working as a team and most importantly having fun! With a dedicated team of trained and experienced staff and volunteers, there is a supportive environment where everyone can take part. We undertake a wide range of activities such as canoeing, caving, climbing, abseiling, zip wire, archery, discos and much more. This year we are also offering the chance to sail with the Jubilee Sailing Trust on the tall ship Tenacious. All our projects are heavily subsidised to ensure they are affordable to everyone.

Big thank you to Richard The minister and Barton Baptist Church where we run Phab.
Richard raised a brilliant £358
With our sponsored swim.
We had hoped he would part the water but we all made it, some got stung by baby jelly fish but all were ok and this funding will go to pay for things like I-bounce, cinema evenings and bowling.
Thank you to all who took part and/or contributed to make this event a great success before we went on our summer holidays.
