Playscheme

We run a playscheme for 8 to 14 year olds at Whirlow Hall Farm each summer, funds permitting.

Who is the playscheme for?

The Sheffield Autistic Society Playscheme is open to the children of all members of the Sheffield Autistic Society.

The playscheme is for those aged 8 years to 14 years who are on the autism spectrum.

The playscheme runs  on weekdays during the summer holiday period at Whirlow Hall Farm Trust
Whirlow Lane, Sheffield S11 9QF

The 2017 scheme is now full. If you would like to apply for future summer playscheme places, do become a member of the Sheffield Autistic Society as the playscheme application form comes out in the members’ Newsletter each spring.
