KIDS runs a holiday play scheme for disabled children and young people to enable them to try new things, have fun and interact and play with their peers. There’s an offer of different activities, including: music, arts and crafts, bikes and scooters, outdoor and sensory play, films, TV and computer games and trips out.
How does the service work?
For children, it gives them the opportunity to interact with other children, non-disabled children and to engage in active, creative and sensory play.
For professionals, it gives them the confidence and knowledge to be able to support children with disabilities and promote their creativty, communication and independence.
For families & carers, it provides them a short break in the school holidays.
Who can access the service?
Disabled children and their siblings aged 5 to 19.
