SNAPS (Special Needs And Parent Support) provides leisure support services for children with special needs of all kinds, and their families. Our aim is to support the entire family, by enabling the child, along with siblings, parents and other carers to participate in a shared experience of physical activity, fun and conversation in relaxed surroundings, supported by professional and dedicated staff. Our age range is from 1 to 16, although most of our children are aged between 2 and 10.
We provide physiotherapist led hydrotherapy and rebound sessions, along with swimming, arts and crafts, soft toy play, and a range of other fun activities, such as dance, sign and sing, boccia, storytelling and music therapy. (Please note Hydrotherapy and Swimming are only available at Penny Field.) There are dedicated areas for each activity. We also have a small ‘tuck shop’ and coffee/tea making facilities.
