What is Potential Kids?
Potential Kids is an award winning charity based in Welwyn/Hatfield providing learning, social and sports opportunities to Neurodiverse children / young people (Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Tourette Syndrome amongst other conditions), their siblings and families.
We offer after-school and weekend activity sessions for neurodiverse young people. These are kept small enough in numbers to reduce social anxieties and fears.
They are held in a safe environment, where our young people can be understood, accepted and have the opportunity of meeting others like themselves. Our young people will have the time and space to enable them to learn and develop their social and communication skills with others.
Most who attend will have limited opportunities to socialise, learn and have fun, as they may have been unable to join other mainstream clubs or are Home Educated. We provide an avenue for young people and their families to increase their self-esteem, reduce social isolation whilst building their self-confidence.
These also give parent/carers the opportunity to meet, relax, have a coffee and some downtime, whilst their young people socialise, learn and have fun. The sessions are run by experienced/qualified DBS/safeguarded professionals, therapists, play leaders, coaches and volunteers.
Potential To Grow
Covid 19 has certainly made things more difficult to achieve but has also made Potential Kids more determined to succeed.

Exciting times ahead at the galleria! Our garden will be an inclusive, diverse and a safe space for everyone to learn and relax, especially during these difficult times.
