Let Us Play is a Wolverhampton based charity that supports children and young people with disabilities and special needs from our local area by providing sports, arts, play and outings and breaks for parents.  We also run a parents support group and are part of Wolverhampton’s Headstart initiative. In 2016 we delivered around 312 separate activities.  Some lasted one hour and a few were whole day activities.  We believe that our sessions improve mental health, reduce social isolation, give disabled children skills for life and give parents a break from caring.  We are pleased that for the past three years we have been OFSTED approved and have continued with the professional development of our sessional staff team. Offering courses in Safeguarding, Autism, managing challenging behaviour and First Aid.
