"As a family we value the respite and the peace of mind that Let's Play brings us, we would be lost without them!"
Here, at The Let's Play Project we love seeing and supporting all of our Young People - it's also incredibly important to us to support their families. Here's what one of our parents shared about Let's Play and the support we provide...
I was lucky enough to be given details of the Let's Play Project when my daughter was 6 and had just started attending the Local Special school. We were at a loss as to how to support our special needs daughter with socialising when nearly all out of school activities were for mainstream children and not inclusive.
I was a bag of nerves when I dropped her off after never leaving her with anyone before. The team were great and reassuring and made me feel comfortable. She bounded out of her first session like she had just been to Disney land! I couldn't have been happier! I was so excited when my son grew old enough that he could also experience the excitement of his first day at Let's Play.
Sessions are planned with themes but flexible to the children's needs. Sometimes my children fully embrace the theme and sometimes they want to do specific activities, there needs are always accommodated by the Play workers and session leaders and they always come out of sessions with big smiles on their faces!
The Let's Play Project gives my children a safe space to play and learn, socialising with their peers in a supportive and tolerant space. As a family we value the respite and the peace of mind that Let's Play brings us, we would be lost without them!
