Next Steps | LinkAble

At Next Steps, young people will encounter a supportive environment that responds to their individual needs.

Transitioning from adolescence to adulthood is an exciting and sometimes nerve-racking time, particularly for people with a learning disability and autistic people. Our Next Steps service guides young people through this journey. We tailor our activities and staffing to each individual, ensuring that a diverse range of experiences is available to all.

We're a team you can trust

Our highly-trained staff have an expert understanding of connecting with young people with additional needs. They will provide support and encouragement to help people feel confident in taking the next steps towards adulthood.

A fun way to practice life skills

'Preparing for Adulthood' is our newest offering for young people who need less support. It provides a fun and engaging opportunity to practise life skills. In these sessions, group members work together to earn badges by completing various activities and challenges focused on developing independence.
