Lady Allen Holiday Play Scheme - Coronavirus
The Lady Allen playground is opening for the summer scheme from the 20 July 2020 and running until the 28 August 2020, from 10:00-16:00, Mondays-Fridays.
Unfortunately we are unlikely to have any availability for the summer. We are operating at around a third of our normal capacity due to the impact of COVID-19 and have consequently been prioritising spaces to those families most in need as identified by the 0-25 Disabilities Team. There will not be any spaces for new users. We will have some time to register families for September starts, but these will also be limited.
Lady Allen provides a holiday play scheme for adventurous play for disabled children and their siblings from the Borough of Wandsworth.
These sessions are for disabled children and young people and their siblings between the ages of 6 -14 years.
It offers outdoor and indoor facilities on a secure site including:
- soft play area;
- an indoor slide;
- arts and crafts; and
- swings, hammocks, a zip wire, a giant see saw, slides, tree houses and a wide range of two and three wheeled bikes.
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 Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) team on 020 8871 6622 or your child's 0 to 25 disability Team social worker.
You will need to provide your child with a packed lunch.
If you are interested in accessing our service over any school holiday period, please ensure that you enquire a couple of months prior so that an assessment can be arranged on site, this is so that we can determine the appropriate support your child/children may need when accessing our service. Please note, we do not carry out any assessments over any school holiday period or the few weeks leading up to the school holidays.
