The Cheesy Waffles Project (CIO) formally Cheesy Waffles Youth Project is a registered charity (1177618) for young people with additional needs age 7 – 30 years. Although our project is predominantly for young people with learning disabilities it is not exclusive to and everyone is welcome.
We are a non-profitable project delivering clubs and activities for young people to attend in their leisure time.
All of our activities are subsidised by grants, donations and our own fundraising efforts to ensure that everyone can afford to take part and have fun together.
Young people have the opportunity to take part in residentials, trips away, shopping excursions, meals out, sports activities, cookery programmes etc. This gives them an opportunity to go out without support from their family giving respite to carers but also developing the young people’s independent skills.
We also encourage young people engage in community work making gifts for others, working with local trusts, fundraising for chosen charities and supporting local community projects this raises self-esteem and confidence and raises the profile of the young people in their community.
All young people learn skills through taking part in activities that will help them with the transition into adulthood and promote self-awareness and independency.
Most importantly we believe that every young person no matter what their disability, background or beliefs deserve to have the same opportunities in life to help promote the learning of new skills, try new activities, visit new places and most importantly have fun.
