We operate a Day Centre facility each Saturday for children. The Centre operates from a purpose built building at Oxfield Court in Dalton, Huddersfield, it is available to all children in Kirklees. It has excellent facilities including, a large activity room with a ball pool, a music room and a sensory room with a waterbed. We hold 3 hour sessions in the morning and in the afternoon for children who are 0 – 16 years of age.
We developed this service in direct response to the wishes of parent/carers, who were asking for services to be delivered out of the home environment.
It allows the children to mix with their peers in a safe, stimulating, social environment, an opportunity usually denied to them. At the same time it gives parent/carers a short break from their caring role, or lets them undertake activities with other children in the family.
All children who are referred for this service are assessed by the Day Centre supervisor so that we understand their individual needs. After assessment they will be invited to attend once a place has become available.
The service is free for all the children attending but we are reliant on fundraising and donations to operate this service.
