Children and teenagers with learning disabilities started their summer holidays on a high with a unique summer scheme.

Maccabi House, in Gideon Close, Edgware, gives young people the chance to make friends and gain independence during the break.

The 12 to 18-year-olds have already spent a day at the House of Lords, taken part in a chocolate-making workshop and visited Mill Hill Fire Station as part of the scheme.

This week, they are set to take part in a Ready Steady Cook-style contest, a photography workshop and baking classes.

The scheme is run by the Langdon Brady Club, launched in 2012 to give Jewish people with learning disabilities the opportunity to make friends.

Sophie, who takes part in the scheme, said: “I can hang out with my friends and do different activities. If I was at home I would be bored.”
