Our partnership with YAWN Life7.01.2019
YAWN Life is a registered local charity to our Luton office aiming to help adults with learning disabilities, through creating social opportunities, activities and learning prospects. It was set up in 2006 by two parents who recognised that adults with learning disabilities needed more of a choice when it comes to daytime activities.
Over the past few months, 9 Group have been working closely with local charity, YAWN. During the heatwave last summer, we donated lots of outdoor furniture so that eating al fresco was a possibility for the residents. We have since visited every month to take part in lunch club, an event ran purely by the residents.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone for the outdoor furniture. The guys and gals love it and helped build it that very afternoon. They can now take their activities or lunch outside if they wish without all the hassle of carrying tables out.

YAWN Life provide day opportunities to people with learning disabilities, helping them improve the skills they need to live a happy and fulfilling life. For lunch club, the residents shop, prepare and arrange food for us to enjoy as their guests. They are always delightful company and very welcoming, we look forward to attending each month!
We hope to continue building our relationship with Yawn Life during this year and may also dig out our dancing shoes and attend their monthly disco!
