‘I like being able to give suggestions for activities, I feel my voice is heard.’
– Anthony, Langdon Brady Member
Empowering our people
Social lives are complex for any teenager. They’re even more challenging for someone who is noticeably different to others.
Langdon Brady Club is a youth group for Jewish people who face difficulties learning and socializing. It plays a vitally important role for its Members: an opportunity to meet new people and have fun in an inclusive, welcoming environment. We believe that the interactions that happen at our club help our Members to develop their sense of identity and gain the confidence needed for them practice their own version of independence.
The club is run weekly and schemes are run during school holidays. Langdon Brady Club Members are actively encouraged to get involved with how their groups are run and their suggestions reflect our schedule. Activities include sport, drama, art, music and cooking.
Livingness at Langdon Brady Club looks like our Members having fun in a community of people who are looking out for each other.
Langdon Brady Classic
Takes place on Thursday evenings. Every week a different exciting activity workshop will take place – this term they include pottery, steel pan drums and karate! There are loads of opportunities for Members to share their ideas for workshops and shape future sessions.
Suggested age 12-18 but open to both younger and older children, should the club be beneficial for them.
Langdon Brady Variety
Takes place on Sunday evenings in both Edgware and Elstree. As the name suggests a huge variety of activities take place here from arts and crafts to sports, music, dance, drama, cooking and more. At each session there will always be leaders specifically running a group arts activity, a group sports activity and another alternative activity. The style of the session is more free flow and Members will have full access to our resources and can direct their own time (under supervision) if none of our activities that day interest them. This group is for age 9-20 and participants will be grouped according to age when suitable/necessary.
Langdon Brady Club Action
Takes place on Tuesday evenings and is a group aimed at teens who want to understand more about the world around them and wish to make a positive change to it. The club will combine topical debates and peer led activities. Members will also be able to participate in outings and experiences related to the club activities.
This group is likely to be appropriate for Members age 16+, however if your child is younger than this and would still enjoy participating, please get in touch.
