We run six Saturday Clubs for children and young people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders, learning disabilities and other additional needs. Each club runs fortnightly and takes place at Castle School, Cambridge; Bargroves Centre, St Neots and Highfield School, Ely.
Each group offers children a safe, caring and fun environment in which they are able to flourish and develop independence and social skills and have fun. Activities are planned to enhance a range of skills and to encourage choice, socialisation and independence.
Activities include arts and crafts, indoor play, toys and games, sensory stimulation and play, sports and outdoor play, music, dance and imaginary play. The young people are encouraged to lead the direction of their group and plan additional opportunities which have included, supervised trips to the shop and picnics at the local park.
How to apply for a place
Referrals to all of the groups are made via the Cambridge County Council Contact Centre, Children & Young People’s Services rather than through us. They will discuss with you eligibility criteria and funding for the appropriate group.
If you are interested in a place, please contact them on 0345 045 5203.
