Holidays are great! We get free time, able to do things that
we don’t get to do everyday and spend time with friends. But sometimes this isn’t
always possible, and it can often be… well boring!
At Wear Mencap, we try to make the most of the Holidays, doing sports, arts, crafts and some fantastic outdoor activities.
We have qualified Play Leaders who lead fun activities for children and young people and we also have Assistant Play Leaders, who are young people helping to make the holidays the most enjoyable experience for your child.
It is really important to us that our Holiday Schemes are accessible. This means that children of different abilities are encouraged to join in the accessible activities, in a safe environment where the children are encouraged to learn and try new things.
We also try to make the price accessible, aiming to make the scheme as affordable as possible.
The main scheme happens at Great Lumley Methodist Church, and accessible building where we have great facilities available, such as a multi-sensory room and sports hall, but is expanding in to different areas. Most recently we have run a scheme in West Pelton.
We are also ofsted registered, which means you can claim back 70% of the cost if you are on working tax credits.
If you would like your child to come on a Holiday Scheme, then feel free to contact us in the office on 07847029615 or email Amy at [email protected]
