Portsmouth Junior Club is a service that was previously run by the Portsmouth Autism Support Network and now is primarily designed for young people with additional needs from 5 to 12 years of age and brings together three different services into one complete programme which were ‘Youth Hub’, ‘Gym Club’ and ‘Multi Sports Club’. The group meets on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday afternoons during term time, where service users can come along and interact with others, build friendships, take part in games and enjoy a regular social environment. There is a rolling set of weekly activities which run during the month as follows:
