Dens Of Equality
We believe that those children most at risk of social exclusion, particularly disabled children should have priority access to inclusive community play service
We believe that disabled children, young people and their families have the right to an ordinary life
Our aim is to make Birmingham a more inclusive city by reaching out to those children and young people most in need through inclusive play and leisure opportunities.
Our partnership work with Hamilton School is multi dimensional; we deliver our Saturday play sessions from the site; we also run our afterschool club ’playing up’ from the school. The school have also provided us with generous storage space for our play resources. We have good open communication with the leadership team of the school this works well for signposting families to our services.
Rookery Children Centre
A key partner organisation from the beginning, we have developed an outdoor play space on the site ‘the secret garden’. All of our holiday playschemes are delivered from here.
Working with the Children Centre has been useful as the family Support workers know who we are, they are a point of referral for local parents and carers who may need our services.
Providing services for parents and carers to access local and national leisure, culture and the arts.
We have been working with ATHAC to develop a new ‘youth offer’ for disabled young people. Working with them has opened up new opportunities to the youth group, particularly around the arts.
Hockley Day Care Centre
Thanks to Hockley Day Care Centre our youth group now have access to a bright and roomy venue, perfect for the members of the group who use wheelchairs. The Centre offers weekday opportunities to adults with learning disabilities. When we were in need of an accessible weekend venue, they have warmly opened their doors; giving young people the space to hang out with their peers; its a place where we can meet some of the social, development needs and interests of this diverse group of young people.
