Let’s Get Active
Project Category: Registered charity
Let’s Play supports 135 young people aged from 5-25 with additional needs in Banbury and the surrounding villages. The Project provides an After School Club, Holiday Club, Youth Group, and 18 plus group which is accessible to all. We have a bank of 30 playworkers who are highly trained in toileting, gastrostomy feeding, medication administration, safeguarding and play techniques that respond to each young persons individual needs.
Let’s Get Active will allow us to take young people out into the community to go swimming, bowling, to visit local parks and the surrounding countryside. This provision allows disabled young people to access leisure and sport in the community with the support of our highly trained playworkers. Many families live in pockets of deprivation within Banbury and trips out are logistically challenging.
We aim to engage disabled young people to participate in sports activities and remove barriers that restrict life choices. When a community is accessible to everyone we allow young people with disability to be independent, equal and offer them more choice and control.
