Lady Allen Adventure Playground provides opportunities for adventurous play for  children with disabilities and their siblings from the Borough of Wandsworth.

This facility is for children and young people with disabilities and their siblings between from the ages of 5 (in school Year 1)  to 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;
  • a bus to take children home during term-time; and;
  • holiday care.

Opening Times:

  • the playground is open during term time for School Visits
  • School Holiday Playschemes: Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm
  • After School Club: Monday to Thursday 3:00pm to 5.30pm
  • Saturday Club 10am to 4pm

Lady Allen Adventure Playground also runs a youth club on a Friday during term times only for 14-19 year olds from 2.30 pm-7.30pm at the cost of £5 per session.

Please 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. 

These assessments are not carried at on Saturdays in the school holidays, or in the run up to the Summer holidays, so please arrange to visit in term time and not just before the Summer holidays.

Lady Allen is also open to the public in term time as follows:

Monday - Thursday 3.00pm - 5.00pm

Saturday   10am to 12 noon

School Holidays 10am-12noon ( This is currently not available)

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 MASH on 020 8871 6622 or your 0 to 25 Disability Team social worker.
