Group activities

We run a number of special activities for children. These are packed with fun, stimulating and culturally appropriate activities and have a high ratio of staff to children. Attendance is subject to first having a Children and Families’ Assessment. Our regular sessions are held at our Children’s centre.

Children’s Centre

Our beautifully decorated centre is situated on the ground floor of Eventhall House at Heathlands Village care home. With lots of bright murals and different activity areas it is an ideal, safe venue for children. It has lovely indoor and outdoor play spaces, dining and craft areas.

School holiday play-scheme

School holidays can be very stressful times for families in need of support. Our play-schemes based at our Children’s Centre give children a great time while parents and carers have a break.

Annual respite activity holiday

Every year we take a group of children with special needs on a respite holiday to the sea-side. For many parents and carers this is the only time that they have a complete break from caring. Meanwhile we ensure that the children have the time of their lives.

Parenting courses

Subject to available funding we offer occasional 12 week Positive Parenting courses. These are run by our Webster-Stratton trained staff. There are 2 versions of the course:  one designed for parents of younger children and the other for parents of teenagers. The courses are extremely popular. They aim to help enhance parenting skills and improve communication and confidence in dealing with challenging behaviour.

Should you or someone you know need more information about these services please contact our Referral and Advice Officer, Sue, who is available every weekday from 9.30am – 12.30pm on 0161 772 4800 or email sue.l@thefed.org.uk
