Does your child spend a lot of time at home, glued to a screen?
Do you struggle to find clubs that can cater for your child’s needs?
Would you like to employ someone to support your child, but don’t know where to start?
If your child has additional needs, it can be harder for them to access clubs and activities in the community. They might need extra support, a smaller group, a quieter venue or staff with specific skills. This event is about helping you find the right activities for YOUR child.
Our information marketplace is a great opportunity to find out what’s available and make contact sports and leisure providers who specialise in supporting children with additional needs. You’ll be able pick up leaflets and talk to staff and volunteers from around 30 local organisations.
We’ll also be running several workshops about the help that’s available from Sheffield City Council:
• Short breaks and respite services for disabled children
