Activ8 South – Playworld, Shavington

Soft Play Sessions – Activ8

Everybody’s Activ8 sessions allow children to try out new activities and let off steam without fear of being judged. Children can play on the specialist soft play equipment, and get creative with arts and crafts, supervised by our friendly coaches and volunteers.

The sessions run every fortnight and take place at Fun 4 All in Macclesfield and Playworld in Shavington.

Everybody Sport and Recreation believes that leisure and learning activities are not passive ways of spending time, rather a way of gaining enjoyment, satisfaction, achievement, pleasure and inclusion. Our Ability for All programme is a range of inclusive activities for all ages with a disability or a life- term condition.

    Case Study

    Amy is 17 years old, and lives in Cheshire. She has Autistic Spectrum Disorder, and has been awarded multiple grants from Family Fund since her mum’s initial application in 2004.

    “We heard about Family Fund a long time ago now, when Amy was only small,” says her mum, Claire. “We used to take her to a place at the infirmary called the Mary Sheridan Centre, and one of the members of staff there mentioned it to us.”

    “Amy has autism. She is non-verbal, and is still in nappies, which impacts various parts of our lives. Even though she is non-verbal, she understands everything that you tell her, and she is very intelligent. So we just have to make sure we are constantly telling her what we are doing.”

    “She is going to college at the moment, which has been great for her, but she is still very routine-based. If anything unexpected happens, she doesn’t take it very well.”

    “Over the years we have received several things from Family Fund. We have had a washer, a fridge-freezer… then more recently the iPad. I think the first thing I applied for was the washer dryer, which we needed because Amy needs a lot of changes of clothes during the day.”

    “Another year I applied for bedding for Amy. That meant she could stay at my mum’s house and I could have a little break. I remember that being really helpful at the time.”

    “We definitely wouldn’t have been able to afford any of the items ourselves. We have got limited family who we could have asked for help, and so we probably would have had to do it through loans or credit cards, which I obviously did not want to do because we would struggle to pay them back.”

    “Family Fund has been an absolutely tremendous help with everything that we have had and been through. I am just so thankful that they exist.”
