Each year they run a play scheme during the School holidays for children with additional support needs. This is staffed by a mixture of experienced paid workers and volunteers.

This is voluntary work opportunities for students aged 16 – 18 and provide excellent experience in childcare and further individuals’ interpersonal and leadership skills.  They’re also a lot of fun!
