The Yard

Services for families and children and young people accompanied by a carer are at the heart of The Yard and our drop in sessions echo the sentiments which underpinned the founding of the playground; a safe, nurturing and non-judgemental environment for children with disabilities which simultaneously promotes appropriate risk taking and challenge to develop inclusion and independence.

During term time we offer two drop in sessions aimed specifically at families; one on a Friday afternoon (1pm-4pm) and all day on a Saturday (10am-4pm).

Rain or shine the playground offers a range of activities from assault courses and bike ramps to arts and crafts and cake baking to offer something for everyone.

Siblings are welcome alongside children with disabilities and accompanying parents have the opportunity to grab a coffee and a chat with friends safe in the knowledge that their children are in good hands.

Sunday Family Sessions

If you are interested in coming along to our new family sessions on a Sunday afternoon then please contact Sharron Ainsile to discuss a place. These sessions are for those families who are unable to successfully access our busy Friday and Saturday family sessions.
