Lady Allen Holiday Play Scheme

Lady Allen provides a holiday play scheme for adventurous play for children with disabilities and their siblings from the Borough of Wandsworth. 

Summer 2021 Holiday playscheme – We will be running our summer playscheme from w/c 26th July,  through till August 31st 2021. 

Please note:

Due to the impact of COVID, Lady Allen has had to restrict the number of children and sessions that would normally be planned.  However, we are hoping to be able to offer more spaces in the near future.   If you are interested in your child attending Lady Allen, please could you complete the REGISTRATION OF INTEREST FORM  and email to:   

Your childs name will then be added to the waiting list and when a space is available, we will contact you further.

These sessions are for children and young people with disabilitits 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.
