Opportunities for Budding Footballers .....
For 2019 we’re delighted to announce a collaboration with Sky Blues in the Community, the official charity arm of Coventry City Football Club. They actively seek to contribute to local, regional, and national priorities, using the football club to positively impact on a range of agendas such as physical activity, health and well-being, community safety, community cohesion, employment and skills.
What joy, we have established an all ability Football Team in the Warwick /Leamington area. Personnel from Sky Blues in the Community will be responsible for coaching the team ably assisted by our team of ‘volunteer’ coaches, Nicky, Joss, Callum and Harry!. We are sure this will lead to other good things happening with the club. We meet every Tuesday evening between 5.45-6.45pm at the Leisure Centre, St Nicholas Park, Warwick. Want to join us? Contact Lynne for more details firstname.lastname@example.org
Out & About Service
In October 2014 we launched a brand new service, thanks to the generosity of BBC Children in Need!
The Out and About Service provides volunteer befrienders who work with families across Warwickshire and Solihull to offer the opportunity for disabled children and young people to enjoy activities of their choice, out and about in the community or at home with the support of a volunteer. We regularly publish a blog on the Share the News page, so keep checking to see how it’s going.
We’re now into our FIFTH amazing year since this service started – NO WE CAN’T BELIEVE IT EITHER! and we’re still supporting lots of families. Every year we submit our report to BBC Children in Need, so they can see how well their money is being spent. Download more information here.
Will you tell us what you need from us?
We’re developing our services to offer further support for young people and adults with additional needs/disabilities. We would like to gather your views on what help and support you’d like to see/be made available/find helpful and we would be grateful if you would spend just a few moments answering some questions. Download the form, fill it in and email back to email@example.com. It’s all confidential and we’d appreciate your input.
At Entrust Care Partnership we like to try and offer support to the whole family. One of the ways in which we have done this is seek funding to support brothers and sisters of children with additional needs. Through our ‘Siblings Groups’ we have offered a safe and caring environment for Siblings to come together and enjoy time that is just for them. At these group sessions we have explored feelings and emotions through games, art and craft activities, as well as have fun and take part in high energy activities such as Zumba, Cheerleading and Horse Riding. We’ve been lucky enough to receive generous funding for five separate Siblings Groups, all of which have run for 6 or 12 weeks, in different areas across Warwickshire. Our Rugby group has just come to an end but we’re looking forward to the next group in Kenilworth early next year. If you’d like to find out more, email firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
Siblings Film & Drama
We were lucky enough to work with Simon from Reeleyes, who delivered a 12 week Film and Drama workshop, where the youngsters enjoyed a variety of drama games, more than just a few chuckles were had!!! They also had the opportunity to explore the use of the green screen, the lightbox for animation, creating and drawing stories and behind the scenes tricks, slow motion and fast motion, to name a few.
Moonbird & Me
Siblings group for children aged five and above which uses creative drama and story to explore feelings and emotions associated with family life where there is a disabled sister or brother within the family unit, and was hosted by Lydia from SpOT Drama. We based the drama sessions around themes using picture, story books as a stimulus for discussion and interpretation, which lent themselves to dramatic opportunities to act out the story’s themes of family life, anger, relationships, achievements, positive images of disability and the children’s own stories.
