The Chat 1st Youth programme at the Brentwood Centre is back and we can not wait to see you! The programme will commence on 14th September, running for 12 weeks until 13th December. 

With the support of Sport England, Active Essex, Active Brentwood and Youth Services we can offer all classes at a fantastic rate of just £2 a session or £30 for 12 weeks. To qualify for this funded rate every participant must register and complete a questionnaire prior to entry for monitoring and evaluation. Please arrive 30 minutes before your first session to allow time to complete this. All payments will be made by card at main reception.

Youth autism & additional needs gym sessions

For ages 12 - 19 years, from 4pm - 5pm every Saturday, the Gym is used exclusively for our autism and additional needs gym sessions. Each participant is met in main reception and led through to the gym where the music is turned down and the session is led by Ben. Ben himself has autism and has found using the gym has proved to be a great coping strategy, boosting his confidence and developing his physical and mental wellbeing. Once very nervous to enter the building, Ben now leads this session as a level 2 gym instructor who is also working towards his level 3 personal training qualification. The session is also supported by a Chat 1st Team Activator who is fully trained in Mental Health First Aid.  

These sessions are open to anyone showing any autistic traits and does not require a diagnosis of autism. Participants are welcome to bring along a friend or family member.

Saturday: 4:00 - 5:00pm

Ages: 12 - 19 years

£2 per session
