HOW TO HELP - QUIDS FOR KIDS
Everyone NEEDS to play
Everyone has the RIGHT to play
IMAGINE . . . if every family outing involved having to leave out a member of your family, because it is just impossible to do it together. . . if, when you do eventually brave the local playground, people stare at you . . . or ignore you . . . or keep their children at a 'safe' distance, just in case . . .
Families of children with special needs cannot easily enjoy the opportunities for fun and recreation which the majority of families take for granted: going to the park can be a distressing and fraught experience. Going to the local leisure centre can be like a military operation. Bowling - difficult! Cinema - forget it! Out for a birthday meal - afraid not!
NOW IMAGINE . . . a place where the whole family, whatever their individual needs, can spend a whole day of fun, playing and laughing together - a place which is not just a great day out, but an important part of the family coping mechanism . . . a place where everyone is accepted, everyone is equally valued and everyone has the chance to join in and play . . . regardless of their abilities . . . a place where you can relax, meet other parents 'in the same boat', and recharge your batteries - a place where you know that your children are supported, safe and enjoying themselves - a place where they are learning important life skills and making friends.
YOU are imagining the Thames Valley Adventure Playground . . . helping to make life a little better for families of children with disabilities
