ASAS run playschemes for children and young people with additional needs* during the Easter and Summer holidays, and a Christmas Activity Day in December. These provisions are for children aged 5-18 years, who live in the Aireborough area of Leeds (LS5, 16, 18, 19 20 & 21) and are usually based at Green Meadows School, Guiseley.
*This includes: learning disabilities, autism, physical disabilities, complex health needs and more.
We can cater for children with medical needs, challenging behaviours and profound learning & physical disabilities.
We have highly trained and experienced leaders to care for the children, all of whom are DBS checked and trusted members of our team. They regularly undertake safeguarding training and other specific training such as
Team Teach, First Aid, Epilepsy, Epipen Administration, Moving & Handling and Behaviour management.
The cost is £15 per child per day. However, this fee is negotiable. As a charity, we never want a child to miss out due to
During the play schemes, the children take part in a programme of activities, e.g. Swimming/hydrotherapy, trampolining/rebound therapy, arts & crafts, cooking, music & movement, drama, entertainers, animals visits
and trips, e.g. to the cinema, bowling, climbing, sailing, to parks, play centres, farms and many, many more activities and places.
If you would like to discuss your child attending our scheme, or you know a family who would, then contact us for more information.
During playschemes, we cater for up to 35 children per day and provide them with leisure opportunities that they may otherwise struggle to access due to the nature of their disability.
We try of offer up to 8 days per child during the summer scheme.
