We run a playschemes for children aged 5 – 13 throughout the year during the Easter, Summer, Christmas and half term school holidays. We organise fun activities, local trips out and people to come in and run activities to make sure that the children in our care have a good day.

Our trained and experienced staff support the children, with a minimum staff ratio of one member of staff to two children. Transport to and from home and for all activities is provided.

We cater for children with a large range of needs at our Holiday Playschemes, and work closely with social services to ensure we can support the children who use us appropriately and safely to make sure they have a good day with us and go home happy.

If you know a child with a learning disability who would like to join the club, or would like more information, please contact Niki Lowe in the first instance on 020 3963 0599 or office.manager@mertonmencap.org.uk.

Please note that a place for this club must be referred by your social worker; you will need to contact and speak to them directly about the Saturday club becoming part of your child’s package, however we are always happy to give you as much information about the club as possible.
