A parent who has been involved with the project for several years explains what it means for her daughter:

“Our daughter loves the day trips and activites which Let’s Play provides. She has great fun meeting her friends and the play workers who know her so well. She particularly likes the sports and games and art sessions and gets really excited about trips to swimming pools and activity centres like Thomley Hall. Our daughter uses signs to communicate and we are completely confident that play workers understand what she is saying. We value the feedback we receive at the end of each session and would recommend the project to any family with a child with complex needs.”

Another parent describes their family’s experience:

“Let’s Play today?” This is the first thing my son says as he wakes on a school holiday morning. Being a real socialite, Let’s Play is so important to him. At Let’s Play he can meet up with his friends and enjoy a range of activities. With the support of the play workers he is able to participate in a wide range of activities. A few favourites are swimming in Aylesbury, day trips to Lego land or sports days at The Hub. To him though it’s the people that make the day! He greets all his friends and play workers with great enthusiasm and I can leave him knowing that he is not only happy but well cared for too. Nothing is too much trouble for the Play workers and they are well trained to deal with his medical needs. Let’s Play is so valuable to our family in meeting his needs but also giving us a break too.
