You may recall that Voice4Parents recently conducted a survey to find out parent and carer experiences of leisure facilities in the city. All of the leisure survey responses have been collated.
Voice4Parents has since met with a representative from the Local Authority to share the findings. As a result, two dedicated swimming sessions for children and young people with additional needs, their carers and siblings, will soon be taking place at Central and Bilston-Bert Williams WV Active Centres. Further details and booking information will be promoted on the e-bulletin in the coming weeks.
This is an excellent example of Voice4Parents working in co-production with service providers and how your views really can make a difference!
Voice4Parents would also like to invite parents and carers along to Aldersley Leisure Village on Thursday 28th April at 9.30am another WV Active Centre, to view the general leisure facilities on offer and suggest how they could be made more inclusive. If you like to come along please email us. It is anticipated the tour will take approximately one hour. You will be made very welcome.
Don’t forget that Wolverhampton’s new Youth Zone The Way has an exciting range of activities to offer all children and young including those with additional needs.
