Project Smile Play and Learn

Project Smile Play and Learn runs two weekly groups, school holiday play-schemes and, subject to funding, an annual respite holiday for children with additional needs.

The groups and play-schemes are run in our beautiful Children’s Centre – a great place for kids to come and have fun in a safe, spacious, kosher environment.  They are run by our professional, experienced staff

There are lovely activities including arts, crafts, music, gardening, baking, reading and painting.  Best still they get to meet other children and make new friends.

Weekly Groups

Friday – pre-Shabbos for boys and girls with additional needs aged between 5 and 12/13 years old.

Times vary according to Shabbos.

Sunday – 2.00pm – 5.00pm

This weekly activity group is for boys and girls with additional needs aged between 5 and 12/13 years old.

School holiday play-scheme

School holidays can be very stressful times for families of children with special needs.  Project Smile play-schemes, based at The Fed’s Children’s Centre mean children have a great time while parents and carers have a break.

Annual holiday

Subject to resources, Project Smile Play and Learn runs respite holidays for a group of children with special needs. For many parents and carers this is the only time that they have a complete break from caring.

And Project Smile makes sure the children have the time of their lives!

Care at Home

Care at Home provides flexible, home-based one-to-one care for people of all ages, including children with special needs, children in need and their families.

One-to-one care and support

Our trained Care at Home support workers help and encourage children to take part in leisure, educational and daily living activities.

Parents and carers can have a break from caring with peace of mind, knowing your child is being well looked after.

At the same time your child will be guaranteed to have plenty of fun and stimulation and encouragement to learn new skills and build confidence.

Our Care at Home workers can come to your home or bring your child to our Children’s Centre or another suitable venue.
