Play Inclusion Project

November 2020

– Play Inclusion Project supports children and young people with additional needs and disabilities within Blackpool, Fylde, Preston and Wyre. They run after-school clubs, holiday clubs, evening groups as well as many other activities to help these children enjoy a full, more meaningful life.

Since Play Inclusion Project received a grant from The Kentown Wizard Foundation towards the costs of their half-term activities, the charity has held 3 activity clubs which were attended by 53 children and young people with disabilities.

Bouncy Castles were hired and a visit from the Hands on Animals team was scheduled, which provided huge enjoyment for the children and enabled them to burn off lots of built-up energy. They also had Halloween-themed activities throughout the week with pumpkin carving, face painting and sensory activities, giving them the chance to socialise in a fun, safe environment, with the support of staff and volunteers.

A member of the Play Inclusion team said –
“The children loved seeing their friends away from school and had lots of fun with them. The sessions definitely benefited their mental health and well-being and reduced their social isolation. Not only this but the parents and carers also benefitted, as they were provided with a break from their caring role.”
