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 2019 playscheme will run on weekdays from Monday 29th July to Friday 2nd August during the summer holiday period at Whirlow Hall Farm Trust, Whirlow Lane, Sheffield S11 9QF

If you would like to apply for places, do become a member of the Sheffield Autistic Society as the playscheme application form appears in the April 2019 newsletter (see members’ Newsletter). Forms should be returned by 30th April 2019.
