Who are Barrier Breakers?

Barrier Breakers is a group of young people all aged 11 – 21 (although some members maybe older if they started the group before their 21st birthday) from all over Oldham.

Our members have special educational needs and/or disabilities.

The group works with Oldham Council and other agencies to try and make a difference for young people in Oldham with additional needs and disabilities.  This year we are also looking to work regionally and nationally.
