Access 4 All Activity Scheme

The Safety First Access 4 All activity schemes go from strength to strength’  

From small beginnings, we have become one of Bradford’s biggest and most well used accessible holiday activity schemes for children and young people with disabilities, learning difficulties and sensory issues.
The SAFE scheme has become so popular among children and young people [C and  YP] with disabilities that we expect the disabled membership to increase from 15 disabled C and YP per day to 40 disabled C and YP per day.

Positive Access
We have found that there are many disabled children and young people who are within the Mirpuri community who have not been accessing activity schemes – we are proactively recruiting from this community in addition to the wider Bradford Community to ensure that everyone has access to exciting out of school activities.  

The Future
Part of our longer term plan is to increase the number of children and young people with disabilities or sensory issues attending activities that they would be unable to access otherwise. Some of the C and YP attending support their disabled brothers / sisters and sometimes need some respite. The SAFE project provides a safe play environment for young carers in addition to C and YP with disabilities.

We will need to increase the number of rooms and size of venue hire and increase the number of staff and volunteers  to meet the extra need . Part of our longer term plan is to increase the number of C and YP with disabilities or sensory issues attending activities that they would be unable to access otherwise.
 

What children and parents / carers say about the scheme;

‘Staff and volunteers at the scheme go out of their way to help.’

‘S. has really improved her communication and confidence since coming on to the scheme.’

‘Me and my sister  love coming , I wish it was on every day.’
