Medway Holiday Playschemes
We are Beams is expanding to support Medway Disabled Children.
Beams have teamed up with Demelza Hospice to offer holiday activities and play schemes for severely disabled children and young people in Medway. Access to such schemes is very limited and has left many children and young people very isolated in this area.
Katrina Adams, Operations Director at Beams said “Demelza Hospice has such wonderful facilities with their hydrotherapy pool, interactive garden and soft play area and it’s great that they have offered them to us to provide this much-needed service in the Swale and Medway area. We are really excited about this partnership and it will make a huge difference to the lives of local children”
Beams are offering initially 4 days for at least 6 young people each day. This scheme is for young people with severe and complex needs and will have 1-1 and personal care.
We intend to take the young people out to an activity centre such as Arethusa on two of the days. Pick up and drop off will be at Demelza Hospice. Places are limited so please book early.
We encourage all parents and carers to become members of Beams so that you can then access our other services. All young people on the playscheme will have their own individual care plan. A membership form can be found at the bottom of the page to download.
The Medway play schemes are funded by BBC Children in Need
Sessional Support Workers
We need to recruit new sessional workers based in the Medway area to work on this new scheme. If you have an interest in working with disabled children please call us for this project work.
