Lady Allen Holiday Play Scheme

Lady Allen provides a holiday play scheme for adventurous play for children with disabilities and their siblings from the Borough of Wandsworth. 

For Children

  • With a diagnosis of SEND or an EHCP
  • Who are aged 6 (or in school year 1) up to age 14
  • possible places for siblings in age range (depending on demand for SEND children)

Pre-attendance assessment is necessary to determine support need (1-1 or 1-4)  before booking can be accepted.

Maximum booking of 2 days per week per child (on 1-4 staff support ratio)

Cost: £4 per child per day

Time: 10.00am to 3.45pm

Packed lunch to be supplied by parent/carer



Lady Allen Playground offers outdoor and indoor facilities on a secure site including:

  • soft play area;
  • an indoor slide; 
  • arts and crafts; and 
  • swings, hammocks, a zip wire, a giant see saw, slides, tree houses and a wide range of two and three wheeled bikes.

When a child requires 1:1 support in order to use the playground safely this will normally be funded by Wandsworth Social Services after an assessment at Lady Allen, but once again the first step is an assessment visit. 

Referrals can be made direct to the playground.

Social Services can arrange a bus to this service if your child has a social worker. Please call the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) team on 020 8871 6622 or your child's 0 to 25 disability Team social worker. 

If you are interested in accessing our service over any school holiday period, please ensure that you enquire a couple of months prior so that an assessment can be arranged on site, this is so that we can determine the appropriate support your child/children may need when accessing our service. Please note, we do not carry out any assessments over any school holiday period or the few weeks leading up to the school holidays.
