Our bespoke outreach services aim to support young people for whom play scheme is not appropriate, assisting in creating and seeking inclusive play opportunities for them in their local community. Our staff engage with and assist the young people; the support is tailor made to suit their needs, wants and interests. They are consulted regularly about what they want and the playworkers aim to make it happen.

In recent years, our playworkers have been working with our bespoke clients to cover the following areas;

  • Reinforcing the STOP, LOOK, LISTEN and THINK road safety procedure

  • Appropriate behaviour on public transportation

  • Developing communication skills with shop assistants, including enquiring about or requesting to view a product

  • How to compare prices from store to store, budgeting skills and how to manage an allowance effectively

  • Retaining and organising receipts of purchased items

  • Explaining their choice of meal when placing an order

  • Keeping track of time

  • Being aware of their surroundings and empathetic towards others

Staff are responsible for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the young people and work in partnership with other professionals including social workers, teachers and activity team leaders, as well as the family to provide support for them. The work we do is beneficial to the young people and families, as some of them are unable to access other provisions, otherwise leaving them without any support.
