We are pleased to inform you that our Saturday Club is supported by funding from Children in Need.

Thank you Pudsey!


The Saturday Club aims to provide opportunities for children with a range of disabilities and needs; to engage with children in a safe and caring environment. A wide variety of exciting activities are available in order to develop:


  • Social skills
  • Communication
  • Confidence and self esteem
  • Life skills
  • Individual and group play


The needs of the children are at the centre of what we deliver, it is designed to be fun, stimulating and to support children to develop to the best of their ability. We believe that children and their parents and carers should have as much choice as possible. With that in mind we have changed the way that parents and carers can book onto our sessions. We are now using an online booking system called Wufoo.
