The Disabled Young People’s Project

Feel your worries or disability are not understood or respected?

42nd Street’s DYP project is for anyone who identifies as having a disability and is 13-25 years old. You might want to talk things through with a worker on your own or you might want to meet new people and learn skills or feel more confident.

One to One Support:

Talk to a worker about the things affecting you. You can meet a worker at 42nd Street or somewhere near to where you live. The sessions are confidential and can help you to develop new coping strategies.

The kinds of things we can help with:

  • Feeling worried, stressed and panicky
  • Depression and feeling low
  • Having scary thoughts and feelings
  • Self-harm
  • Problems in relationships
  • How other people treat you
  • Gaining more independence
  • Family problems
  • Issues around food and eating and how you feel about your body
  • Feeling lonely
  • Bullying
  • Finding positive ways to cope with the things going on in your life
  • Making links with other support services

Projects and Activities:

Monthly group: A safe environment to explore social interaction, communication and emotions. A great way to meet new people, build confidence and self-esteem. Meet, share and learn with other young people with ASD.

Open to anyone 18 – 25 years old. The group meets once per month at a local cafe.


We aim to provide an accessible service to young people. The building has a lift and our space is accessible to wheelchair users. If you have any access needs, require support to attend or would like information in a different format please contact us.
