What’s it about?
This project provides fun, social, outdoor activities for families who have children with additional needs.
We offer weekly accessible and non-judgmental sessions to build skills and learn through play. It also provides a break and a support network for parents or carers to gain advice from other parents or carers.
Activities are created to be suitable and inclusive to all ages, abilities and disabilities, including calming activities, sensory elements for stimulation, learning around nature and physical activities. Activities are in the outdoor environment and include growing, cooking, bush-craft and nature crafts. Sprout also includes young mentor project running which focuses on building independence and life skills for older children.
Who’s it for?
Any family who feels they need extra support. Siblings are just as much part of Sprout as are extended or non-traditional families.
The location alternates between Crow Nest Park, Dewsbury, WF13 2SG and Hope Bank Works, Honley, HD6 9PF.
