Children who will benefit
Corseford Short Breaks Service provides a person centred overnight respite service for young people with disabilities aged between 5 and 19 years old and is part of Capability Scotlands Learning Provision. Currently young people can use this service three days per week; it is intended to increase this to seven days per week from April 2015. It offers the children and young people an opportunity to socialise with their peer group in a familiar setting
Renfrewshire Project Play & Activity Schemes which provides access to play and leisure fun for over 172 children during school holidays in spring ,summer and autumn. It operates 5 play and activity schemes at 4 units, Kersland, Clippens, St Anthonys and Mossvale Nursery Snowdrop Unit. These units are for children aged 3 to 19 years who attend special need schools or communication units.
These play schemes vary in delivery dependent on the needs of the child, some children presenting with multiple complex needs and some more able but appreciative of the opportunity to play in a safe, nurturing and familiar environment with resources which will maximise their development
Corseford School offers education and play to children and young people with disabilities from 5 - 18 years old. The school is open to pupils from 9 - 3.30, Monday to Friday, term time only.
After School clubs offer places to pupils with complex physical needs on a Tuesday/Wednesday evening from 3.30 - 6.30pm. This for many of the pupils is the only opportunity they get to see their friends socially due the wide demographic area the school covers. The School provides opportunities to support the children to enable them to have fun and to develop through play activities in a stimulating and safe environment.
Clydesdale Breaks 4 All operates as an outreach fortnightly service in the rural area of Clydesdale based at Carluke Leisure Centre where disabled children are brought together from rural areas and they too can benefit from weekends at a lending service.
Inverclyde: Corseford will create links with specialist schools across the area to ensure that children with disabilities have the same access to this initiative as those described above, forging new partnerships with groups and families within Inverclyde
