Beckly Centre: Beckly Playscheme, Youth Club and Weekend Social and Inclusive Activities

Programme of activities during school holiday playschemes and at weekends throughout the year offering opportunities for disabled children and young people to participate in play and social activities, benefit from being included and have fun during their leisure time.

Sessions have a good mix of activities for children and young people to engage in small friendship groups, encouraging interaction socially as well as opportunities to learn and practice esential life skills all in a caring and supportive environment at the Beckly Centre Plymouth and in the wider community.

The Beckly programme at the same time provides respite time for families and carers as children and young people should be able to participate in activities supported by workers at Beckly, so parents / carers do not always have to accompany their child.

A session fee is payable Spaces may also be available for siblings
