Mobile Phone Use at Phab Club
To raise money for the xmas party and future trips we have arranged a bag pack – Saturday 7th December 10.45pm to 3pm at Sainsburys Willows. Need as many as possible to cover 12 tills please.
This proves a great fund raiser for Phab so any help you can give, even an hour will be gratefully received.
Unfortunately due to a rescheduled school trip to China, 4 of our members (possibly more) are no longer able to go to Harry Potter in November.
If you would like your young person to go please let Mark have a deposit of £10 or full amount £25 asap.
This will need to be done on a 1st come 1st served basis.
Thank you – Mark

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.”
