INCLUSION

At the heart of Oasisplay

Inclusion is at the heart of all Oasisplay services. We believe inclusive play spaces offer a wide range of social opportunities and rich experiences that benefit disabled and non-disabled children alike.

We have a small, enthusiastic team of specialist play workers who will support disabled children and young people at all three sites to ensure they get the most out of what we have to offer.

Oasisplay understands that finding suitable, exciting and safe provision for disabled children can be challenging so we’ve developed the Inclusion Project around what children and their families need. Our aim is to provide a quality service that’s as flexible and responsive as possible.

What we provide

After School Clubs – Tuesday to Friday during term time. Times: 3.30pm to 6pm. Ages: 6-16.

Saturday Clubs – Every Saturday in term time only. Times: 10.30am to 4pm. Ages 6-16.

Holiday Playschemes – Monday to Friday throughout all school holidays (except Christmas). Times: 10.30am to 4pm. Ages 6-16.

Stay and Play – This service allows parents/carers to bring their child/young person to Oasisplay during any of our play sessions. Parents/carers have the opportunity to play with their child/young person within a fun and exciting play environment. The best thing about Stay and Play is that it is FREE!.

We do ask families to contact us for Stay and Play during school holidays as it can get extremely busy on site. We will do all that we can to make space for you.

Siblings 

We encourage siblings of disabled children and young people to access Oasisplay at the same time. This allows siblings the opportunity to engage in play opportunities together but to also allow them to engage with other siblings of disabled children and young people who will have shared life experiences.

Supported Volunteering 

Oasis is proud of its small and dedicated Supported Volunteer programme. We offer Volunteering opportunities across all 3 sites to young disabled people aged 15-25. Volunteers are supported throughout the day by an experienced support worker on a 1:1 basis.

1:1 Support

Young people with complex or high support needs are supported throughout their play session by a dedicated Inclusion Playworker. This includes support with: play and social opportunities, personal care, behaviour, independence, staying safe, medication and eating and drinking.

1:4 Support

Young people with lower support needs receive 1:4 support. This means one Inclusion Playworker will support 4 children throughout their play session. 1:4 young people are often more independent so require less support from the Inclusion team. They still receive support from a member of the team but will mostly play independently during a session. Children/young people wishing to join the project will first need to undergo an assessment of their needs. This will help us to determine what level of staffing support they require so we can best support them during their time at Oasis.
