About Us

A Big Thank You


Spring Into Phab would like to convey a huge thanks to the following organisations who have provided us with funding to set up:

He is very enthusiastic when he is coming he particularly enjoys the physical activities and clearly regards everyone as a friend. Mary parent of young person 

It gives the young adults a safe and friendly environment where they can be themselves  and meet new people on their own terms, for once it’s their rules 😉
Karen Parent of young person 

Before joining spring into Phab I did not have much of a social life I did  not go out that much. Since joining spring into Phab in November  2016 I have  built a  strong  friend ship with new friends  that I spend time with the group in session and  outside  the group I would highly recommend  that new members  join
