Topcats offer support for young people and adults with additional needs from the age of 5 years to 30 years old based in Suffolk.
Topcats is a small, local charity based in Pakefield, Lowestoft. We are partly grant-funded by Activities Unlimited.
TOPCATS offers fun, friendship and the chance to build transferable life skills in an engaging and welcoming environment. Once a young person has joined Topcats, we ensure that we take time to get to know each individual and make sure they are at ease with a key worker who will support them to make their own choices.
As a team, it is our primary aim to help each individual develop their own social independence and life skills in order to reach their potential in a supported environment. In addition, we are able to supply young people with a vast range of exciting sensory, art, sport and music equipment, to help them build up their awareness of themselves and the world around them.
We offer a weekly 'Choices' day time group for people who are looking for alternative day care. This group is open to anyone aged 16 - 30 with any additional needs. We base all activities around the group and with a moderate staff ratio we are able to offer one to one support and mentoring. Our activities are mainly focused on community access and life skills within a safe environment.
You can pop into see us at our premises on Morton Road; the staff are more than happy to meet you and show you around! Alternatively, you can email Carolyn to discuss things further.
