What do we do for Children

ChAPS has a range of activities for children including a weekly social intervention club based in Northwich.

The Club is a specialised socialisation group for children in Cheshire aged between 7-11 years old with an Autism Spectrum Condition (whether diagnosed or not).

The kids are being taught how to play, have a conversation, share, make friends and how to cope with ‘not’ winning the game!
We are seeing some fabulous outcomes from the children attending.

For further information on The Club please download the flyer.

We run around 80 regular activities every month which range from parental support meetings, youth clubs, kidz clubs, yoga for parents, family swims, horse riding, animal interaction, gym with music and dance to crafty club for parents.

We supplement this with one-off events like ‘Technofest 15’ a Minecraft and Coding day, outdoor survival skills, picnic in the park, science workshops, autism friendly concert, Christmas Market etc.

We also have a very busy adults on the spectrum group who meet up twice a month for pub nights, social outings to walks in the forest, quiz nights, trips to Liverpool etc.

For further information about any of the activities or joining ChAPS please ring our Cheshire Support Worker on 07462 887815 or by email families@cheshireautism.org.uk or through Facebook please message Carey Chaps.

Holiday Club

For the first time over Summer 2017 we provided a Holiday Club from 8.30am until 5pm at Winsford Academy each Wednesday of the holidays clocking up an impressive 4,000 hours of activity!

We had a fantastic time with up to 25 children including siblings with a high staff ratio of 1:3.  The children had a multi sports session, dance workshop, arts & crafts session, Wii, Xbox, board games, computers, Lego, parachute games, bug hunts and cooking.

We all thoroughly enjoyed these sessions – parents called them a lifeline.  We expect to continue these during most school holidays.
