Low-demand environment

Just like our other courses, how and if young people choose to participate is completely up to them. 
 

 We explore an optional prompt at the beginning of session, but participants are encouraged to make whatever they feel like making, with whatever tools or mediums they like.

​Engage with strengths and special interests

Research indicates that engaging with areas of interest can be a protective factor in mental health for neurodivergent people. We offer a safe and understanding place for young people to engage, explore and share their interests with others.

Discover neurodivergent role models

Led by neurodivergent facilitators, many of whom also work in the arts, Art Club is an opportunity for young people to meet and be inspired by peer mentors who understand what they are going through.

Why Uncommon Activity Clubs?

Find your people

Get a chance to meet amazing neurodivergent people who share your passions. There'll be time in sessions to share ideas and make friends.

Unleash your creativity

As divergent thinkers we have a lot of creativity within us, and studies show that spending time 'in flow' learning and practising our creativity positively impacts our wellbeing. Plus its fun!

Be yourself

Feel free to share, create and communicate in your own unique way. Create. Share. Reflect. This is a space for you to be you!

The sessions are pitched just right. It was lovely to see him understanding more about his strengths.

Our Approach

🙃 Designed for different learning styles

Learning comes naturally when young people feel at home. That's why we've designed our sessions to be relaxed and welcoming. Whether young people need to stretch, move around, or even fidget, they’re free to do what they need to engage best.

🌈 Neurodivergent led

Each session is run by two neurodivergent facilitators. They lead by example, sharing their own experiences of growing up neurodivergent. We create an environment where being neurodivergent isn't just understood – it's celebrated.

😻 Engaging curriculum

Our sessions are packed with valuable insights about being neurodivergent. We break down complex concepts into simple easy to understand ideas and use visual guides, making learning interactive and fun.

👾 Choose your own interaction

How young people participate is entirely up to them. Keep cameras on or off, share thoughts verbally or in writing, or just sit back and watching. We even offer an anonymous contribution option for those who prefer it.

🥽 Safety first

All of our team members are trained in safeguarding and have their Enhanced DBS Checks done. At the start of our session, we ask for an adult to pop onto the camera for a quick hello - this helps us know an adult is nearby. But don't worry, for our young participants, there's no camera pressure. They can choose to be on or off camera - whatever makes them feel at ease!

👬 Parents, Join us!

While participation isn't mandatory for parents, we love it when parents join in. Feel free to join us and observe, or even interact alongside your young people.
