Accessibility and Children with SEND

Our full programme is inclusive of all needs, however, we do have some specialist providers who are really experienced in activities for children with SEND and we have secured spaces at these clubs so that they can be offered first to the children that would most benefit from them.

Please get in touch at enquiries@hafworcestershire.co.uk for more information and booking.
