Our Holiday fun days run on selected dates through the longer school holidays. We take children aged 3 to 18 years with a wide range of abilities and needs.
Where possible each child is given a one to one volunteer carer for the day. The volunteers are mainly recruited from local schools and colleges and are given basic training, there are also 6 highly skilled and experienced staff on site.
The Holiday fun days take place at our fully equipped centre in Newbury, we have lots of exciting onsite activities planned from cooking, craft and sensory activities. The children have access to our hall, soft play room, sensory room and large playground. We also have some external visitors such as a magician and circus skills etc.
Volunteers are always welcome and appreciated!
Volunteer application forms are available from the Mencap Centre or download here.
