Voice4Parents are delighted to announce that we have been working with Wolverhampton City Council to offer the following SEND activities for the summer holidays based on the feedback we have received our members, parents and carers over the last 12 to18 months.
The activities available are all SEND inclusive for children and young people with SEND (0 to 25 years) and their siblings and family living in Wolverhampton.
Please note that the activities are all SEND friendly and because of this groups are being kept small therefore places are limited.
All activities are free of charge and are funded by Wolverhampton City Council, HeadStart and the Department for Education.
