‘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 when you don’t fit in.
Langdon Brady Club is a Jewish youth club for 12 to 19-year-olds with mild to moderate learning disabilities. It plays a vitally important role for its members: an opportunity to meet new people, make friends and have fun in an inclusive, welcoming environment. 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. Each term starts with members deciding what they’d like to do and planning their activity programme. Social activities include sport, drama, art and music.
More than just a service
Langdon Brady Club also aims to increase members’ confidence and independence – not just teaching them how to look after themselves but also to do things for others.
Other Members participate in fun runs and even go on to return as volunteers when they’re older, helping run the weekly clubs and holiday schemes.
Langdon Brady Club meets every week during term time at Maccabi House, Edgware:
12-15 age group, Wednesdays 6.30 – 8.30pm
16-19 age group, Thursdays 7.00 – 9.00pm
‘Members gain a lot from coming to Brady every week, just knowing they always have somewhere to be themselves where there are people to talk to who are just like them and understand them.‘
– Lily, volunteer
