Why do we provide our Playschemes?




For many of the children who attend, the playschemes are the highlight of their year as they offer such wonderful social, recreational and educational opportunities.  We provide a safe environment in which to play and mix with friends while still ensuring that each child's individual needs are met.



As well as the obvious benefits the playscheme brings to the children there is also the difference it makes to their families, many of whom just could not cope with having a child with special needs at home for 24 hours a day during the school holidays.  We provide respite for parents and allow brothers and sisters to spend some quality time with their parents.


Playscheme is often the only opportunity for disabled children and young people have to socialise with others during the long holidays. Your money will help provide one to one support, pay for reliable transport to and from home and enable us to fill their time with fun, safe and exciting activities amongst their friends.


Thank you.
