Key Stage 1 Ages 4-7 years
We have been awarded a grant from Kent County Council to provide a holiday playscheme for disabled children aged 4-7 with severe and complex needs living in the Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley areas.
The playschemes will run in the Easter, summer and autumn school holidays.
Parents that would like their children to take part must contact their social worker in the first instance for a referral to this playscheme.
All places allocated are subject to a referral and a support plan in place. Please click here for dates.
During the summer we will be running 10 days of activities across our three ages groups. This service is for young people who require a 1-1 provision and need personal care assistance. This service is for members only.
For ages 8-18 years old please click here for dates and activities.
Parent’s Feedback is important to us!
This Easter we offered lots of different play schemes for your child. We need your feedback as to how you feel they went and if your child had a good time.
Feedback is needed because as a charity we rely on funds from the public to support you and your child. Although we request voluntary donations we do not cover our costs of care. We need to generate £1.4 million this year to support the 350 children and families at any one time. Please just click on the links below to answer a few questions.

The big lottery through the reaching communities programme has awarded us a five-year grant. The scheme is aimed at disabled children that would not be able to take part in mainstream activities without our support.
We do not offer 1-1 or any personal care at these inclusive sessions.
The children will be able to take part in ball games, swimming, crazy golf, trampolining alongside other non-disabled children so that they can play together, understand one another and will improve their physical and social skills.
They will run in Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley from local Leisure Centres.
