Holiday Play Schemes

VSA operates two play schemes where the aim is to promote fun, confidence building, peer interaction and social skill development in a way that is meaningful to the young people we support. Our play schemes provide respite and continuity for parents, carers and children during the school holidays. We just have fun and try to make each holiday the best ever.

Holiday Fun Club

Children and young people from five to 17 years come prepared to have fun by bringing a change of clothes, a packed lunch and lots of drinks. The scheme’s programme is varied and exciting and caters for each child’s individual needs. Places are allocated via a Social Work or Care Manager.

Venue: Hazlewood School during Easter and October holidays and Heathryburn during the summer holidays 
Staffing Ratio: Four staff to 19 children/young people
Club Times: 10.00am–2.30pm
Cost: £5 (full cost subsidised by Social Work)
Co-ordinator: Grace Gray

Under 8s

This scheme caters for children from five to eight years and has a high staffing ratio of 1:2 making this scheme ideal for some children that find it difficult to cope and have fun in large numbers. We provide a large varied programme both indoors and outdoors that caters for each child’s individual needs.
