Shaypes organise regular activities and events for young people and adults in the local community. We have a huge range of daytime activities which help to encourage mobility and social interaction. All our activities are focused on encouraging a healthy lifestyle, promoting good mental health and enhancing the lives of our young people.
We organise activities throughout the year, and no matter the season, there is something to get involved with. In the colder months, we enjoy exercise classes, pub trips and winter walks. During the summer and holidays, we organise plenty of days out and always have a full calendar of events.
Some of our daytime activities include:
To get young people moving and everyone leaves feeling happy and energised.
To encourage social interaction and aid the development of problem-solving skills as well as being a super fun day out.
To help young people find work experience opportunities throughout Kent.
Shaypes work with many local organisations to offer a huge range of volunteering opportunities.
To get moving and have some fun with a day of trampolining.
Art & Crafts
Young people can unleash their creativity with various arts & crafts activities.
When the weather is nice, we can arrange picnics in the park with a game of cricket or rounders.
For those animal lovers, we offer dog walking days where young people can explore the great outdoors with a four-legged friend.
We regularly take our young people to local shows and theatres, perfect for enhanced sensory awareness and an unforgettable experience.
Kickboxing is a great way to encourage movement and healthy activities, while having some great fun.
We often arrange day trips to local attractions including museums, theme parks and zoos.
Hollywood Bowl is one of our regular venues and is a great way of socialising and trying something new.
In the Summer we often host BBQs and picnics where young people can learn to cook and spend time in the great outdoors.
With many lovely beaches around our local area, we arrange beach trips for splashing around in the sea or having an ice cream with friends.
