Family Days

We often run family days throughout the year.
These are opportunities to come as a whole family and play. We run these sessions at the scout hut or on a big trip out such as bowling or climbing.

They are a good opportunity to meet other families and siblings. Yorda staff volunteer their time to provide an extra pair of hands for the day.

 

Most of our play projects are based at: Yorda Playhouse, Devon Way, Chessington, KT9 2RJ

Playscheme: Cost £1-15
Weekend Clubs: Cost £1-15
Adventure Holidays: Cost £10-60

Yorda Adventures run a variety of projects that
seek to support families who have children with disabilities. Very occasionally we target a project
at a specific group, for example those with Autism or those with physical disabilities.

To see the projects that are coming up in the next few months please take a look at our blog.
We recommend that you also join our mailing list so that you know when we have released new dates.

Any questions about our projects please contact Laura Smyth or Rosie Stone.



AFTER SCHOOL CLUB

We work in partnership with Dysart School to run their after school club for working parents, funded by RBK Early Years department. The club provides the specialist childcare needed for parents to increase their working hours or to go back out to training and employment.

This level of specialist childcare is difficult to find and our After School Club always has a waiting list. Whilst we try to provide spaces for as many young people as possible each night, we are restricted by our funding. We are often asked if we only provide this service to parents at Dysart School.

At the moment the answer is yes, we only run extended schools services at Dysart at the
present time.

Ages welcome: 5-19yrs
Cost: £7.50 per session plus £2.50 per session
for those wishing to use the bus service..

PLAY SCHEME


The school holidays can be a difficult time for families. The young people we work with often like the structured nature of the school day and, as we all know, home life just isn’t like that.

Our play schemes allow families a few hours break in the day, so they can spend time with other siblings, do some housework, go to work or have a well earned rest. We try and run play schemes in as many school holidays as possible.

The activities are all out and about in the community and as with all our projects, we tailor our plans to fit the young people we are catering for. Join the mailing list to hear when we release dates or give is a ring.

Ages welcome: 5-19yrs
Cost: a donation of whatever you can afford between £1 and £15.




ADVENTURE HOLIDAYS

Our Adventure Holidays are high quality short breaks for children and young people with disabilities.

For the young people that come along we offer a fun holiday, with opportunities to take part in leisure activities that are tailored to each group we take away.

For the families we offer a two night, three day break from the 24/7 job of care. This is an opportunity to spend time with other siblings and have a well earned rest.

Ages welcome: 8-19yrs
Cost: a donation of whatever you can afford between £10 and £60
