  • “I liked the slime making :-)”

    — Child quote

  • “My child only attended for one day and that was a day that none of her friends were there so I was a bit worried but the staff were incredibly warm towards her from the beginning and it was lovely to notice they all knew her by name at the end of the day.

    — Parent quote

  • “Well planned organised activities. My daughter loves every second of the club and never gets bored 🙂 “

Situation

WCC has been severely impacted by Covid-19 with a huge drop in bookings. As a charitable organisation we operate only by receiving fees and this has led to a huge drop in finances. Our costs for PPE are very high which further impacts our financial situation. We have disabled children who would benefit from attending a sensory provision and our outdoor area project will enable us to deliver activities outdoors as recommended. The other after school club is in an area of high deprivation

Solution

The other after school club in Enfield has no out of school provision the School and children and families have missed out. Offering specialist sessions for disabled and all other children, offering activities to support disabilities and well being. The outdoor area project is to create all-weather play and to promote health and fitness for the children.
