Lady Allen After School Care

Lady Allen After School Care provides opportunities for adventurous play for disabled children from the Borough of Wandsworth.

It is for disabled children and young people  between the ages of 5 -14 years.

It offers outdoor and indoor facilities on a secure site including:

  • soft play area;
  • video games room; 
  • arts and crafts; and 
  • an indoor slide.

They can provide:

  • after-school care during term time; and
  • a bus to take children home during term-time.

Phone and ask to come for a visit on a Saturday, between 11am and 3pm with the child. On that visit all forms can be completed and the child's needs can be assessed, normally they will be able to start the following week. When a child requires 1:1 support in order to use the playground safely this will normally be funded by Wandsworth Social Services after an assessment at Lady Allen, but once again the first step is a visit on a Saturday.

Lady Allen is also open to the public at specific times during term times.

Referrals can be made direct to the playground.

Social Services can arrange a bus to this service if your child has a social worker. Please call the Initial Point of Contact (IPOC) team on 020 8871 6622 or contact your child's 0 to 25 Disability Team social worker.
