Leeds Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Information and Fun Day

On Saturday 27 June, staff from our children's physiotherapy and occupational therapy teams attended a special Fun Day for the families of disabled children at the John Charles Centre for Sport. Here, Julie Cliffe, clinical pathway lead for children's physiotherapy looks back on the day. 

For a number of years, Leeds has held a well-attended Special Educational Need (SEN) marketplace, to provide families of disabled children with the most up to date information about what is available for their children, and for the last few years EPIC Leeds has hosted a Fun Day in partnership with Breeze and Scope. In response to the financial difficulties that every council and their partner organisations are experiencing, it was agreed this year to host a joint event at the John Charles Centre. The aim was to offer families an opportunity to gain information, provide feedback and have some fun.

The day was hosted by Epic and Scope in partnership with various colleagues. Most of the John Charles Centre was booked with both indoor and outdoor facilities and the space was used for fun sessions and informative stalls for all the family. There were inflatables supplied by Breeze, specially adapted bikes and lots more fun activities and information.

The Children’s Physiotherapy Team and Occupational TherapyTeam set up stalls to provide information on the services they provide within the Integrated Children’s Additional Needs Service (ICAN) for children and families within the Leeds area.

The day was a great success with lots of interest in the stalls and also an opportunity for staff concerned to network with other staff, service providers and local organisations.
