BBC Children in Need After School Clubs

528 children and young people (510 with a disability) took part in our two year after school clubs project. It involved delivery of 5 after school clubs and 2 lunch time clubs in Eccleshall, Leek, Stoke-on-Trent & N-U-L. Along with improved fitness levels, body and spatial awareness, our aim was to increase the participants teamwork skills, self-confidence, tolerance, focus, and at the same time raising aspirations by achieving and experiencing new opportunities and new ways to communicate. It gave disabled children a chance to socialise and make new friends resulting in gaining independence, reducing loneliness and isolation.
