You told us

People told us it is hard to find information about leisure opportunities they can do as a whole family, rather than just for the child with SEND.  It is also hard to find information about physical access to venues.

The problem

Material on the Local Offer was limited.  Material found across the internet was variable and often out of date.

We listened

We created a series of pages which we hope will help young people and parent carers access information about more accessible leisure for individuals and families. This includes many new topics such as exploring the arts, theatres and swimming pools, accessible sports, SEND sessions and inclusive youth groups.  We have promoted the SEND events calendar to local providers who are adding their accessible sessions regularly.  We hope that the new pages will help young people and their families to get out and about more with less stress.

You can find more information on our Leisure pages.

What has the impact been

Pages were published at the beginning of the summer holidays.  We will update this once people have had a chance to use them.
