Charlton Athletic Community Trust - ASD Project

The ASD Project provides activities and trips for young people with ASD in Greenwich. Sessions are held on Monday evenings and Saturdays, alternating between activities at Hawksmoor Youth Club and trips to external venues or activity centres. Activities have so far included ice-skating, Laser-Tag, theatre trips, Jump Giants, bowling and film nights at local cinemas.

 CACT Short Breaks statement: FEB 2020

CACT would like to announce that as of immediate effect the following changes are being made to our Short Breaks service which is commissioned by RGB.  As a result of low attendances and limited interest from young people and parents/carers we have decided to redirect the funding  currently used to deliver the Monday night ASD session. This unfortunately means that the Monday night session will cease to run. Due to high demand on both our Saturday and school holiday provisions,  we have made the decision to use the funding to increase the number of places available on both of these provisions. CACT will assign additional staff  to support the current team which will allow us to safely extend  these popular provisions to more young people. This will help in reducing current waiting lists and increase engagement in areas where there is demand. CACT would like to apologise for any inconvenience to young people and parents/carers caused by these changes,  but would also like to reiterate that we feel that the funding will be better utilised following the amendments to our service.

CACT would also like to announce that we will once again be offering residential trips to various activity centres. The trips will be delivered over 2 nights and will involve an exciting range of engaging activities alongside the experience of staying away from the home in a supported environment. Under the new contract we have been delivering single night residential trips in various local youth hub settings. Although these trips have been well received by those who have attended,  it has become clear after consultation with young people and parents/carers that making these changes would be welcome.

Allocations for the above provisions  will remain to be placed through the Short Breaks team at RBG
