Objectives

Potential Kids is voluntary non-profit organisation based in Hatfield, aiming to help neurodiverse young people, their siblings and families by providing social/activity groups.

We offer after-school and weekend activity sessions for neurodiverse young people. These are kept small enough in numbers to reduce social anxieties and fears. They are held in a safe and understanding environment, where our young people can be understood, accepted and have the opportunity of meeting others like themselves. Our young people will have the time and space to enable them to learn and develop their social and communication skills, through play with others. Most who attend will have limited opportunities to socialise, learn and have fun, as they may have been unable to join other mainstream clubs. We provide an avenue for young people to reduce their social isolation, increase their self-esteem, whilst also building their self-confidence. These also give parents the opportunity to meet, relax, have a coffee and some downtime, whilst their young people socialise, learn and play. The sessions are run by experienced/qualified DBS/safeguarded professionals, therapists, play leaders, coaches and volunteers.
