Things to Do

Box of paints and paintbrushes

There is a lot to do for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities. This includes play schemes, after school activities, sports clubs and youth groups.  

Some of the activities are funded by Salford City Council and have been assessed so that they take place in fun, safe, friendly environments and are led by fully trained staff. Some groups are also open to siblings and/or parents.

You will see the Local Offer badge on ones funded by Salford City Council, the other non-badged activities have been listed by organisations independent of Salford City Council who work to provide accessible activities, these organisations will be able to advise you on the environment, facilities, staffing and adjustments in relation to the needs of children and young people with a disability.

Please always call an organisation before attending a group and particularly at the current time, as organisations will be making changes to delivery dates and times,  group sizes etc. as they work within the developing Covid 19 guidelines.
