Youth Action Diversity Trust


Hello!! I'm Otis and I am the very proud mascot for the Youth Action Diversity Trust and their Rookie Ranger Programme! First, let me tell you a little about myself first with some interesting facts about us fabulous Otters!

  • There are 13 species of Otter found all around the world!
  • Some of us like to spend all our time in the water (we are very good swimmers!), while others split their time between the land and the water!
  • We call our home (or den) a 'holt' or a 'couch'!
  • We are very playful and take part in activities just for the fun of it. Some of us have been spotted making waterslides to slide down into the water! Well, wouldn't you!?

So, where will you be seeing me?

You'll find me in the Play Ranger programme of activities which is for 5 to 7 year olds. You can play my favourite game of Football in the 'Kick About' session, learning how to stay coordinated on your feet and passing the ball! If something a little more creative is more your thing, then the 'High 5 Activity Club' sessions are perfect, as you will get to try a whole range of different activities from cooking, to dance and drama themed sessions! There is also the 'Run-Around Fun' where you can let off even more steam by playing the best playground games, obstacle courses, Olympic type games and team challenges!! I might see you in our 'ADHD Social Club' where we play different sports, try craft activities and even cooking!

To find out more, you can speak to one of the friendly members of Youth Action Diversity Trust Team at my Head Office in Sidcup on 0208 308 3862, or via the contact page. All the information on these Programmes can be found from the 'youth work' page at the top!

Thank you for stopping by!
