Friends and Places Together

Friends and Places Together is a local Southend based charity helping young people who have learning and physical disabilities to meet up with their friends.

They usually offer support to young people from 13 to 25 years old but they also get requests to support older people who have lost a lot of close contacts and do not use Facebook or other social media.

The charity offers a wide range of social events and group activities where young people get a chance to have a great time with each other and make more friends.
