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 email@example.com
Out & About Service
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.
Siblings Film & Drama
Moonbird & Me
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.
Will you tell us what you need from us?
“This is a very important programme. I wish it could have been continuing – perhaps meeting quarterly to share current problems and get advice from other grandparents, face to face is what is needed.”
“I really enjoyed the workshops and have gained a lot of knowledge from the sessions. Therefore, I will be able to deal more effectively with the situation I am in.”
“The discussion helped with personal issues, knowing what help is available is comforting.”
“Well-structured and managed.”
“Enjoyed listening to speakers and interacting with other grandparents in similar situations. Thank you very informative.”
Grandparents Matter Too
Funded by Warwick District Council, we were able to offer a supportive environment in which to explore some of the conflicting emotions experienced, each Workshop was hosted by a different skilled Guest Presenter. We shared useful information about how as grandparents we can best support our grandchild/ren and our family. We had a super time and shared lunch made by pupils at Round Oak Special School, which gave us further opportunities to get to know each other. Our planned reunion is scheduled for Wednesday 15th May – we look forward to seeing you then! Look left for details ….. 🙂
