Objectives

Orchard Saturday Club is a small respite charity offering support and short-breaks to families living with children with severe and profound learning difficulties and associated medical and behavioural challenges.  We run 2 alternate sessions fortnightly, one for youngsters between 8 and 14 years of age and the other for those between 14 and 19 and we have a maximum group size of 13 per session. 

Activities

We offer different ranges of activities taking into account the age and interests of the young people. The aim and ethos of the Club is to engage our young people in social activities in the ‘real world’ by supporting their social and communication development and increasing their tolerance of new experiences and activities.  We work on a 1:1 basis, with support workers from a wide range of backgrounds who offer the children in their care a brilliant range of skills and specialisms.
