Hideout Support Groups
Thursday and Friday Hideout is the name of two new sessions created specifically to support children who are finding things especially tough during these difficult times. It's for Key Stage 2 children (those in year 3-6 at primary school) and provides chance for children to meet with others and look at a particular topic each week.
Thursday Hideout is especially for children with additional needs.
Friday Hideout is especially for children who are currently struggling with their mental wellbeing.
Each week the hour and half structured session is packed with activities, crafts, games, play time and chance to learn more about our topic of the week such as confidence, caring, courage, calmness and communication. We'll look at the challenges of the season we're in, think through our responses, feelings and behaviour and help children feel more equipped to deal with the situation they're facing.
The sessions are planned carefully by experienced team, with sensitivity to the specific needs of the individuals in the group. There will be a maximum group size of 12 children with 4 leaders. The children will see the same children and leaders each week so there will be some familiarity. Everything will be done with safety in mind and fully risk assessed.
The initial groups will run for 5 weeks until Easter.
We do ask 1 adult to attend with the child and stay throughout the session. Parents are welcome to sit in our community room or ark and can chat to other parents while they wait. You are welcome to bring your own refreshments for yourself and your child as we're not permitted to provide these. Please do not bring any other children or adults to the session.
The cost is £20 for a 5 session booking. However, if you live in Partington or Carrington and cannot afford the cost of the sessions, please contact our team using the main contact us form to discuss.
