Projects Funded in Barrow

Organisation: Youthability Youth Services

Project Title: Scootability

Funding Received: £13,934.84 (October 2023 – May 2025)

Project Outline: 

'Scootability', aims to use scooters to enable young people with special educational needs and disabilities to become more active in a fun and positive way. By doing this, the young people will build their confidence to be more independent in the wider community.

The project will last just under two years with over 50 young people benefitting, as we as their families and friends. Youthability also intend to engage with the young people at George Hastwell School and the young carers at Furness Carers by working collaboratively to hold workshops and participation events.
