A NEW youth and social club for young people with disabilities is seeking volunteers and new members.

Ready4Life aims to provide educational, sporting, craft and social activities for young people with disabilities and learning difficulties, aged 11 up to 30, from across Wordsley, Stourbridge and Dudley areas.

The group, which meets at The Source Youth Centre, Barnett Lane, Wordsley, every Wednesday from 6pm to 9pm, is being run by care worker Bill Guest and a small band of volunteers following cuts to the borough's youth service which could have left some of the young disabled members with nowhere to go when the old 4Us club closed.

Mr Guest said: "We just wanted to the group not to fade away - the young people we cater for have no social life and they look forward forward to their Wednesday nights.

"It's such a nice group and our weekly session includes activities that enable young people to build skills and knowledge, grow in confidence, interact in a social environment and develop lasting friendships."

Activities organised include games, sports, art and craft sessions, cooking, day trips and shopping trips.

Anyone interested in joining the group or helping out as a volunteer can contact Bill Guest on 07305 321577 or email ready4lifedudley@gmail.com.
