Busy Buddies After School Club

Description

The After School Club is for children with severe disabilities that attend a local specialist school.

The children are collected from the specialist school and taken to Play World in Shavington.  The children are supported by volunteers and Cheshire Buddies staff.  The children are able to meet and play with their friends outside of school in a fun and safe environment.  There is a sensory room, play equipment, slides and soft play area for the children to enjoy.  A snack is provided. The activity runs once a month.
