Sólás is a Charity dedicated to supporting children and young people with additional needs. It is based in South Belfast and has a very strong volunteering ethos. Founded in 2009, it provides a range of educational and social progs for children with needs

Sólás provides practical support and programmes for children and young people with additional needs. Its programmes fall into 2 main categories; (1) educational and (2) Personal Development.

Educational programmes include 'Back on Track' where our team of 60 retired teacher volunteers provide one on one support to children of primary age, at stage 1 or 2 on a school's Special Education Needs register. Over 15 schools across NI participate in this programme.

We also run a Kids Support Den at our premises in Belfast, several afternoons per week, where our student and retired teacher volunteers provide learning support to local children with an additional learning need.

Our Personal Development programmes include 2 After School Clubs for children with autism, aged between 4 and 11. One programme is based at Donegall Pass CC and the other at Ballynafeigh Community House.

We also run a 3 week summer scheme and awareness raising events.

In the autumn of 2013, we plan to pilot a Saturday Morning club for children with special needs and their siblings.
