Tanga Club Hexham
Tanga Club is a youth and social group for children with special educational needs and disabilities, and their families and friends. We run a weekly club in Hexham and regularly welcome between 40 – 50 children and their families, but we are much more than just a youth club. We offer not only a safe space for children to play with a huge variety of age appropriate toys, we do sports, have a wonderful sensory room, games consoles, chill out area, free food every week, a specialist barber and Parent and Carer support.
We have a growing army of volunteers, each of whom has specialised talents whether it be helping the children with art and craft or sport activities, or giving advice to families on a range of health, education and socialisation topics. We are widely known in the Tynedale area but have families coming from as far as Newcastle and Gateshead, Morpeth, Kielder and Cumbria. Tanga is one big family and is fully inclusive, regardless of ability or disability. We have a fantastic community and everyone is welcome!
