It was set up by mum-of-two Joanne Duncan, whose sons have autism and ADHD.

She said: “We started with four kids and now we’ve got more than 130 since 2012.

“Everyone is welcome to come over the age of eight.

“We do various activities, we are wanting to do something that can help with their social skills and listening skills and help with fine motor skills.

“We’ve been awarded funding for a new project called Chillax TAAG Youth Club, for young people who have got complex requirements to help them work together and improve areas of difficulty and learn and gain confidence and help their achievements.”
