What is this service?
The Inclusive Pathways Saturday Club runs two Saturdays a month, 9.30-3.30pm, and provides Saturday respite care for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities, aged 8-17.
The club offers a fun, friendly and secure environment with specialist facilities. Children have a variety of activities to enjoy throughout the day and are looked after by fully trained and experienced staff.
Inclusive Pathways endeavour to provide learners with a challenging, practical, hands on learning programme that incorporates and considers their interests, wishes and aspirations. All our programmes are based around working in collaboration with our learners, their family and the local community, and aims to teach key and life skills through a more practical and meaningful approach.
Activities are engaging and based on the interests and preferences of the children in the club. Fundamental to our approach is the belief that relevant social interaction promotes a sense of wellbeing, social acceptance and belonging
