Celebrating 20 years!

Crocus Special Needs Association hold a "special buddies" youth club at Galgorm Community Centre, Ballymena, from 7:30pm to 9:30pm on the second and fourth Friday nights of each month, term time. Our youth club is for special needs young people aged 11 years upwards. On our youth club nights parents can have time to themselves if they wish, or they can stay and enjoy chatting to other parents and volunteers.

Crocus Special Needs Association is run by a small committee and a team of Volunteers, that are very dedicated and enthusiastic. Without this team we could not operate.


Please take some time to explore our website.


Next scheduled youth club event: Summer outing to Jet Centre, Friday 9th August, meet at Galgorm Community Centre at 6:00pm Bus departs at 6:15pm sharp.


We thank you for supporting all of our events.
