The Family Outreach Website aims to be a contact point for our families to find out useful information regarding activities, clubs and holiday schemes for their children. Whilst we cannot recommend any clubs or activities the Get Active part of the website aims to provide information about disability specific clubs, activities and holiday schemes for you choose from. The Family Outreach Team work closely with providers across the borough and with parent/carer/young people’s consent we are able to share key “About Me” information with providers so that they can ensure they are able to prepare for your child to attend sessions. We also offer support to facilitate access to key training where appropriate/possible to enable your child to successfully access a group/activity.
Get Active also includes activities and Events for families to attend together such as Family Outreach/School run events and local community run events.
