Who we are…
We are a holiday activity scheme that runs during the majority of the school holidays, and at present we run over 40 fun activity days a year.
Students will be supported by a team of care assistants who are all experienced in the special needs field. These workers are here to help students participate in events and get the most out of activities. It is important to us that they feel challenged whilst having lots of fun.
Students that attend Find1 have lots of fun in activities, we have days out in the community, visiting places such as the seaside, farms and parks, which our members love to get involved in.
Find has its own minibus so we can go out on trips without having to worry about trains and buses, it also provides us with a quiet area if they need some personal space. In addition to trips out, we offer indoor activities for all of our members to participate in. These include arts and crafts workshops, playing Wii bowling with peers, and cookery groups. Furthermore, at specific points throughout the year, we organise group special events. These could include musicians, magicians, bouncy castles, BBQs and treasure hunts.
We usually invite the other Find services to come and join us so it is a great opportunity to make new friends.
In addition, we usually finish off the year with a big Christmas party.
Where to find us…
We are based at the All Saints Church in North Ferriby. This location has a large sports hall for events and sports activities, along with an arts and craft room and two games rooms. We also have a large kitchen for our cooking and baking sessions, moreover we are in walking distance of several local shops, Hessle foreshore, stables, parks and walks, allowing you to access the local amenities, with support from staff members.
Students can access this service for £25 per day, and funding may be available to assist with this service. For further information regarding this, please contact your local authority.
We are open to all young people who may not be able to access other schemes due to their disability. You can access this service if you are aged 12 to 25 years old and have a moderate or severe learning disability. We have chosen this set age group as we wish to support young people during their transition into adulthood. Once full-time education is completed, we would encourage you to look at accessing one of our other Find services.
