What does NY&CI offer?

We offer residential for children from Netherley and the Surrounding Area.  In the past, we have been able to have up to 4 weekends away at Skipton, Yorkshire and also managed to have a "five day holiday."  This is an important experience, as for most of the children who attended, it was the first time for them to experience five days away from home.  There were over 200 children/young people who participated in the residential's.  Activities included swimming (in an outdoor pool), indoor sports him events and interacting with the residents of the Reptile Sanctuary.
