People in Action (Yorkshire) is a thriving Leeds based charity, established in 1983 to benefit people with learning disabilities and autism. The charity makes a real difference to the lives of the most vulnerable and socially isolated; inspiring and empowering people to recognise their potential, fulfil their aspirations and lead safer healthier, better connected lives.
The charity provides a range of innovative, inclusive, person centered services which reflect the needs of the people it supports. People In Action runs three groups for children and young people with a learning disability or autism, supported by BBC Children in Need. Play, Fun, Learn (for ages 8-12) and TEAM (for ages 13-17) take place over the weekend for 40 weeks a year. The groups are a space for children to make new friends, learn new skills and have fun. The groups are split over three sites: Otley, East end park and Crossgates.
