Situation

There is a lack of affordable activities for children with behavioural issues in central London. The local Play Service have recently increased the cost of their summer scheme from £8 per day to £12 per day – a significant increase for large families on low incomes. One of our mums explains, “My son has got problems because I can see that at home. But it does not help when they just send him home and ban him. I can’t cope because I suffer from seizures.”

Solution

We will provide a safe and friendly place where children enjoy sports, arts and food activities in a nuturing environment. Children will develop their health, communication and social skills. They will cook and eat nutritious food and learn the importance of a healthy diet. Arts and crafts will help children express their emotions and thoughts. Our ratio of 1 adult to 3 children will ensure that children always have a caring adult close to them. Our Friday trips are educational and inspiring.
