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 2018 playscheme will run for 2 weeks from 30 July 2018 to 6th August 2018.
If you would like to apply for places, do become a member of the Sheffield Autistic Society as the playscheme application form comes out in the members’ Newsletter each spring.
