What we do
We provide a variety of services for children and families in Woodhouse Park in particular and Wythenshawe in general. For an up-to-date view of what we are doing, please contact us for our current timetable.
 The Play Service provides free, open access play focused projects for children and young people aged 5 - 13 yrs.  The service enriches children's play by providing skilled play and youth workers and focused projects /schemes. By recognising children's right to play we aim for a community that embraces children, giving them space to play freely and providing them with the choice to access any required support to improve their quality of life and allow them to play independantly.
Our current projects include:

 • Holiday Playschemes - We run open access playschemes for 5-11yr olds during the school holidays. These usually consist of one or two sessions a day and are a great opportunity for local children to play in a stimulating and exciting environment. Examples of activities include: crafts, den building, mini sports, cooking, team games and much more.  Call the Centre to find out when our next Playscheme is planned.
• Aiming High Short Breaks - Alongside our Playschemes we are usually able to offer places to children through the Aiming High Short Breaks programme for children with disabilities  - give us call to find out more.
Wythenshawe Child Contact Centre

 Offers a neutral venue where non-resident family members  can spend time with their children. Workers are onsite to support parents and facilitate activities. This is a valuable service which ensures children can continue to have a positive relationship with their separated family members, particularly their mother or father after relationship breakdown.

Referrals can either be made through solicitors, CAFCASS officers or other workers, or families can self-refer. Families are then invited to a pre-visit to get to know the building and contact centre staff and discuss any issues which may arise.
Mobile Creche.

Our mobile creche service can provide you with flexible chidcare for any occasion. Whether you're running a parenting group, holding an social event or delivering a training course, our mobile creche can provide you with the childcare your customers,users or guests need in order to take part. The service is beneficial to all involved as our team of trained and experienced childcare staff are available to provide supportive, quality care at a venue of the purchaser's choice. Parents and carers are able to relax and get the most from the event, knowing their children are in the same building and being well cared for. The children are provided with an opportunity to play and learn with others in a warm and understanding environment.
