Activity Station


Thursday 1st August until Monday 19th August. 
 
These activities are for children (10-16 years) and adults (16+) with learning disabilities, social communication conditions, ADHD and additional needs.

Cost of activities will vary depending on which activity you would like to attend. Parents/carers are welcome to attend free of charge. If your child/young person/adult is able to attend independently, they are welcome to do so AFTER we have agreed this. This is important as we will need to ensure we are able to get the right amount of staff on hand. If a discussion hasn’t been had then we will expect a parent/carer to accompany the person for the whole day. If you have any concerns/questions about this then we are more than happy for you to contact us.
 
How to book places?

Please email activitystation@outlook.com with the dates/activities you or your child would like to attend. You can also contact us on 07444 881962. Please make sure you clearly state the name and age of the child or adult wanting to attend.
 
Please do let us know as soon as possible so we can offer you a space as they will be limited. We will try our best to allocate as many places as possible but this will be dependent on the responses we receive.
 
For any new attendees, we will need a profile form completed for the child/young person/adult to ensure that we are able to provide a safe and enjoyable environment, particularly as we will be out in public areas. 
 
We will also be taking payment for the day in advance. Once we are able to offer the space on the activity, then we will arrange with you about payment. Without payment in advance, the place will not be confirmed. If there is an issue with payment for any reason, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
 
*Please note that we are unable to guarantee activities and if unavoidable, they may need to be changed. We will make sure you are aware if this happens*

Do let us know if you have queries about any of the above and we look forward to having a fun summer!
 
Hope to see you there.
