Family Holiday Club – FUN for the whole family

Bringing up children and young people with disabilities or additional needs can be very demanding as well as rewarding.  Children can present with very particular challenges or require intensive care and support.

FUN Holiday Clubs operate during most school holidays, offering children and young people a safe and non-judgemental space to play, learn and interact with others.  Full disabled changing facilities with overhead hoist and full sized changing table are available.

Our Holiday Clubs are a lifeline for many families and offer friendship and support for both the disabled young person and their parent carers and siblings.  We offer a range of creative, stimulating and FUN activities for the children and young people to participate in. Parents can bring all of their children and have the opportunity to meet and talk with other parents living in similar circumstances to their own. The children are encouraged to participate in the activities on offer by our play staff and volunteers, but we also support parents to participate with their children within the accepting and non-judgemental environment that the club provides. Siblings are also welcome at the club when attending with their disabled brother or sister.

A child or young person with additional needs or disabilities is also able to attend Holiday Club with a nominated carer.  Parents must include the carers name on the membership form or contact FUN HQ with the details in advance of the session.

Holiday Club offers a huge range of different activities onsite including:

  • Sensory room (with overhead hoist)
  • Computers and iPad’s
  • Table games – pool, air hockey, football
  • Play areas: book corner – lego – cars & trains – dressing up – sensory play – soft animals – arts & crafts
  • Large activity hall with ball pool, bouncy castle and other large play equipment
  • Full disabled changing facilities with overhead hoist
  • Coffee shop

SORRY – FULLY BOOKED – PLEASE CALL THE OFFICE ON 01582 420800 TO BE ADDED TO THE WAITING LIST

F.U.N. has again been able to secure some additional funding that is allowing us to offer all sessions of our Half Term Holiday Club to all of our members FREE of charge.  This means that we will again be suspending all entry fees at our Holiday Club sessions in May, so there will be no need to make payment when you book your places.  (PLEASE NOTE -THERE WILL BE NO FREE LUNCH SERVED TO THE CHILDREN ON THIS OCCASION)

There will be no restriction on the number of sessions that members can book, and we will be offering places for up to 70 children/young people at each session, plus their parents and carers.

**Please ensure that if any of your children are unable to attend your booked sessions, that you let us know in advance so the places can be offered to other children.  If you do not let us know in advance that you will not be attending, this may affect your ability to book sessions in the future.    Unfortunately, at our Easter Holiday Club, 30% of the children’s/young persons places that were booked were then not used as many families did not let us know in advance that they no longer wanted to attend. 

Our Coffee Shop will also be running as normal for you to purchase any other snacks or food that you wish (cash payments only please).  .  Members are still welcome to bring their own snacks/lunches to the Club if you wish, but we request that these be eaten in the Coffee Shop as we do not allow food in the main activity hall.

Members are no longer required to show Covid Passes or to wear face coverings whilst at the club.  However, we would encourage all of our members to continue to test regularly at home and not to attend our Clubs if you have tested positive for Covid or are feeling unwell.

Please remember to pre-book your Family Holiday club sessions.
