We ran holiday playschemes for children who are affected by a range of disabilities and have complex needs. There was a programme of activities and day trips available for the children.
This service offers children and families much needed respite and the opportunity to take part in new experiences and make positive friendships in a safe and nurturing environment.
Our project provided social & emotional support to deaf children, young people & their families. Along with St Roch’s after school club, we provided a wide variety of fun & stimulating activities for deaf young people to socialise & have fun while their carers enjoyed a break from their caring role.
Our project enabled young people living with Cystic Fibrosis to have one to one befriending support while their carer used the time to explore other activities whilst having a break from their carer role.

They meet weekly for 2 hours in a safe, fun environment giving parents and children the opportunity to be with others in a similar situation.
