Summer Play at Uffculme School, Moseley has been organised by local charity Parks for Play as part of Birmingham’s Happy Healthy Holidays program. Parks for Play was set up to provide opportunities for children and young people who are disabled or who have additional needs and has been organising inclusive play in parks, schools, streets, clubs and open spaces for 15 years. It is a member of the Children’s Quarter cooperative.
Healthy Happy Holidays is a program funded by government and operated in Birmingham by Sport Birmingham, the Accord Group and The Active Wellbeing Society. Its aim is to make sure that children who are most at risk of social exclusion get opportunities for physical activity and healthy food during the summer holidays. Children’s Quarter members have been working to make sure that the program includes disabled children and others who find they are often left out of mainstream projects and services.
