Disabled children are often excluded from their local provision as a result of the level of support they need and the fear (resulting from lack of information and experience) that many have of working and interacting with disabled people.
One of the magical and unique things about The Parasol Project is its emphasis on inclusiveness. We champion equality and have created a unique ethos and culture that is present in all of our work.
Our team of experienced playworkers help to break down the barriers facing disabled children by challenging inequality, providing appropriate care needs, acting as advocates for the children and their families.
We recruit and train our staff to support disabled children and young people in accessing our Child and Teen services. Parasol playworkers handle care needs, deal with challenging behaviour and provide a model of good inclusive practice.
Our staff work with children and young people to facilitate play, help build relationships and develop social skills. Plus, they’re great fun! We’re not sure you will find a better bunch of supportive, energetic and compassionate playworkers in Oxfordshire.
All our playworkers go through enhanced DBS checks and attend training in first aid, lifting and handling, Generalist Safeguarding and disability equality training.
Your generosity plays a vital role in supporting our ambitious and enriching provision.
