Since 2005 Blyth Valley Arts and Leisure has successfully delivered a disability leisure inclusion project, Ability To Play in South East Northumberland. The project offers a range of play and sport activities both during term time and school holidays for children aged between 5 – 17yrs.

 

The project provides activities on evenings and weekends. Coaches delivering the sessions are experienced in working with disabled children and will tailor sessions to the needs of the child. Children requiring additional care needs such as toileting and tube feeding will need to supply this support themselves. Parents and siblings are welcome to join in activities to make the child feel more comfortable.

 

For a copy of our needs assesment document which will provide us with vital infromation about your child and how we can tailer sessions for their needs please follow the link - needs assessment
