STARS was formed in March 2015 as a group of young people with disabilities. We soon started to think about how we could support other young people with disabilities. This has lead us to set up a website, email address and telephone line in order for both young people with disabilities as well as professionals. We aim to provide support, fun and friendship as well as advocating the views and rights of children and young people with disabilities.
We offer telephone and online support for children and young people with disabilities in Bury. This may include mentoring, advocacy and support. Please contact us if you would like support.
We run a Thursday night social group for people 25 and over with disabilities in Bury. Please contact us if you would like to attend.
We offer consultative and training to other organisations and professionals around how to support children and young people with disabilities and gain their views. Please contact us if you are looking for support in these areas.
We are also trying to fund a residential trip to Brendrigg Trust in the Lake District for our group. Which would give people the opportunity to have experiences they may not normally get. This includes physical activity and a chance to meet up with friends in a fun and exciting environment. If you would like to donate then click the link below to visit our Go Fund Me page.
