At Our Barn, we are a registered charity (number 1181421) that runs community-based activities providing learning, life skills and social interaction for young people aged between 16 to 35 with learning disabilities or autism.
Members are kept up-to-date with our Covid-19 precautions and restrictions, and we review these regularly and conditions changed. The safety of our Members is our primary concern and our Risk/Benefit reviews take into account the importance of running the activities in a safe manner whilst recognising the importance of face-to-face interaction to many.
*Our rather unusual name was chosen by the young people and comes from the log cabin we use in Redlees Play Centre. We have extended the opportunities we offer, but Our Barn Youth Club remains one of our flagship projects. Details of what we offer can be found on our What we do page.
We are delighted to be one of the Mayor of Hounslow, Councillor Tony Louki's charities for his 2019/20/21 mayoral years, alongside Hounslow Seniors Trust.
As Tony reaches the end of his tenure he has commissioned coaster and fridge magnet sets that can be purchased through our online shop. Proceeds will be shared with Hounslow Seniors Trust.
Bear with us as we work out how to sell online.
