Portsmouth Teenage Project – Enable Ability (ages 13-17)

Who we are

Portsmouth Teenage Project is run by Enable Ability and is for young people aged 13-17 years old living in Portsmouth with a physical and/or mild-moderate learning disability, or additional special need.

The Project aims to provide young people with the opportunity to engage in a variety of planned recreational, social and sporting activities as part of a group setting.

This enables young people to interact and socialise with other peers on a regular basis. Activities are designed to improve pivotal life skills for all young people; including building their confidence & self-esteem, independence, communications and multitasking skills, to name a few.

Portsmouth Teenage Project staff are trained and qualified to support young people and accommodate their needs during each activity, regardless of their level of ability, physical or otherwise. Activities for the Project include social clubs, going out for meals, going to the cinema, ten pin bowling, art and crafts activities, baking/cooking, sports and general socialising. We also arrange a variety of day trips outside of the local area for any museums, theatres or theme parks.

Once a referral to the Project has been made – this can be by a parent, the young person themselves or a professional – we arrange a home visit to meet the family and have a chat about the Project and what we can offer. A mini bus service is also provided to accommodate for long distance trips.

Most activities for the Project take place on a Friday evening.

There is no obligation to attend all activities; parents and carers are free to register their son/daughter for as many activities as they please.

How can this service be accessed and who to contact for further information?
