Seeking summer club for complex needs child

kewilifekewilife Member Posts: 3 Listener
Please can you help me? I am desperately seeking holiday provision for my daughter, she is 7 years old and has complexed needs including learning delay and is unable to stand or walk unaided. Usually she would attend her school summer club but this year the provision has been offered to free school meal families only. This has left me in a huge predicament as I need to work but have no child care.  
We live in South East London, Lewisham Borough .
please message me if you have any suggestions, thank you x

    Hi @kewilife :) Welcome to the community! 

    I haven't had lots of time to look into this for you today, so I've marked your post as unanswered to remind me to try and have another look tomorrow. 

    I did, however, find this website that might be helpful? It appears to have a search tool that allows you to search for kids' clubs in your area that are suitable for those with additional needs. Perhaps you could have a look on there?

    Have you spoken to the school to see if they have any suggestions of alternative providers? Or spoken to any other parents to see if they're aware of anything?

    Thank you for replying to me. Yes I’ve spoken to the school and looked at the councils local offer but there isn’t much available for children with complex needs. 
    I’ve not spoken to other parents I don’t know any in my situation and I do not see parents at school because transport takes her and I work hence posting on here. Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you.
