KEEN Southampton offers free activity sessions for children and young people with additional needs. Our sessions run every other Saturday at Cantell School from 10am-12 am. (The sessions run for only an hour but we use the extra time to set up/pack down.) In our classes and sports sessions, volunteers will be paired with an attendee to provide one-to-one support. Anyone can volunteer with us - you don't need to be a dancer or be sporty, and you don't need to have experience working with children as training and support will be provided!

Interested in volunteering with us? Whether you're a fresher or returning student, come join us at our information sessions to find out more! We are holding two information sessions: Tuesday 4th October and Wednesday 5th October from 18:00-19:00. Both sessions are in the same place in 100/5013. 

If you cannot make either session and/or have any questions please get in touch with any of our committee members or get in touch via Instagram, Facebook or email us on

If you are interested please join our prospective volunteers Facebook group here: and follow our other social media pages linked above.
