WHAT DO WE DO?
We organise regular informal groups and drop ins for children and adults.
We offer varied activity programmes for them in a safe and supportive atmosphere.
Members help to plan the programme themselves and there are opportunities to enjoy different experiences out and about in the community.
For children between 8-17 years we offer 18 Saturday sessions per year, based at Dorothy Goodman lower site on Stoke Road in Hinckley. Due to the large number of children wanting places, families are usually allocated 3 of the 6 sessions per term. We also offer (funding permitting) a residential break during the May/June Half Term Break for up to 28 children.
The summer holidays are our busiest time, when we offer 3 summer schemes for children aged 3-17 years. These schemes take place at Hinckley Academy (formally John Cleveland College) for 4 weeks during July and August.
For adults, we offer a weekly drop in at a local pub (Vis-A-Vis) on a Tuesday evening from 7 till 10pm.
Our focus is on respite for parents and offering a sense of ‘belonging’ to the young people who come to us.
