What?

Through a collaborative partnership between Merseyside Youth Association and Daisy Inclusive UK we provide:
  • A joined-up approach to universal and specialist services, creating visible mainstream pathways and seamless transitions.
  • A combination of centre-based, outreach and mobile services and provision.
  • Qualified, experienced staff, providing a range of activity, opportunity and informal education in supportive settings.
  • Specialist support for all organisations delivering Youth and Play programmes through LCC, aiding facilitation of suitable provision for those with acute and complex needs.
  • Provision of training opportunities for staff, volunteers and service users, including bespoke training and courses, designed in response to current local and national issues.

At the core of our MYA YOU project are the weekly SPLICE (Supported Participation Leading to Inclusion Confidence and Empowerment). These clubs champion a reverse inclusion approach to empowering service users, meaning that disabled and non-disabled children and young people participate in activity side by side
