Strong Parents Reaching Out – outdoor activities for families of children and young people with SEND/SEMH. It is fun together for the whole family. Relax and share information, make friends and face challenges together. You do not need any diagnosis, if you feel your family would benefit then come along to our sessions.
Sprout sessions are held at Crow Nest Park in Dewsbury. A voluntary donation of £5 per family is asked for with your first visit free.
To register your interest or find out more about volunteering at Sprout please contact Jess.
We run sessions for young people aged 13-19 with SEND/SEMH. The sessions are themed around bushcraft, cooking, and exploration. The aim of the sessions is to build independence and confidence, developing life and social skills and to learn to work as a team.
