11-17 Social and Independence Groups

RSBC’s Social and Independence Groups are a great way for you to expand your social circle and build the independence and confidence to go out on your own.

With the groups you’ll not only have the chance to make new friends and build confidence, but also to set and achieve your own goals based on your interests.

You’ll work towards these goals by taking part in group activities in and around London such as climbing the O2, cooking amazing meals, zumba and archery. You’ll be challenged to try new things and learn by doing.

It's been an absolute god send, Harry has really enjoyed the experience and his confidence has grown since joining the group. He's definitely up for doing things he would never have even tried before thanks to the RSBC
