Playability is a registered charity that provides a unique service of respite care for families and carers of children and young people with severe learning disabilities. We run playschemes from 9.30 am – 3.30 pm during school holidays, using local community based venues, including Green Lane Special School.
There are opportunities for 5 to 19 year olds to explore, interact, grow, play, learn, get messy, socialise, experience new things and have fun. An opportunity they might find hard to get elsewhere. We tailor our activities to meet individuals’ needs wherever possible allowing children to develop their skills, confidence and friends.
Our services not only benefit the young person directly, they impact everyone in the family. It gives parents the time to spend with their other children or just a break from the demands of being a carer.
