Play for All

Play for All provides free at-home play sessions for disabled children and their families across Midlothian.

Sessions are open to all disabled children, 0 to 13 years old, including children who are still waiting for a diagnosis.

 

Sessions provide:

  • New ideas for play that your child will enjoy

  • Sensory play you can make at home, with things you already have in the cupboard

  • Easy strategies to help with things getting in the way of play

  • Tips for all-family play

 

What to expect from a Play for All play session

 

Each session lasts about an hour.

 

One of our play specialists will plan activities to suit your child and family. 

We are following the Scottish Government guidance regarding activities with children during the COVID-19 pandemic, and our own risk assessment. That’s why right now we can’t meet you indoors at your home. The preferred approach at present is to provide support virtually, but we can arrange outdoor visits in your garden or local park if judged essential to your support needs.

During each session, we’ll have fun playing, get messy and be creative.

 

The sessions are completely free of charge and are arranged for when is convenient for you. You can choose how many sessions work best for your family, usually up to around 10 in total.

A parent shares their experience

“Before, it was really hard for me to figure out what sort of stuff I should use to give my children the opportunity to play safely and with sensory things. You gave me a lot of new ideas to work with my kids, especially sensory skills which have a deep impact on them. Your hard work and appearance with brand new ideas are just amazing.”
