Provision of Respite Facilities for Children with Disabilities during School Holidays.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!

Please kindly support me in signing the petition I created to support parents, carers, children with special needs and disabilities living in Southwark borough.

The petition is to encourage the local authority to open a specialised play centre with facilities tailored to meet the needs of all children with complex needs and disabilities.

We currently do not have enough respite facilities, any specialised play centres with indoor facilities in the borough that is accessible after school, during term time, school holidays and over the weekends for children with additional needs and disabilities to benefit from.

Parents always have to go out of the borough paying a lot of money to access the leisure and play scheme facilities.  Few of the play scheme facilities available are for children from age 8 and over. During the school holidays, most families with children with disabilities struggles to engage their children due to the lack of leisure facilities and play centres in the borough.

A play centre with different recreational facilities tailored to meet our children’s need will be beneficial to our community.

Recreational facilities such as trampolines, hydrotherapy pool, wall climbing, adventure playground, sensory garden, sensory room and a large soft play area.

Indoor activities which also includes a music room, game room and different sport facilities for children age 3 - 15.
