Charity description

Buxton Summer Club logo
A fun filled 2 week Summer Holiday Scheme for 40 Disabled Children and Young People.
Buxton Summer Club is a Charity which aims to give each child and young person an exciting 2 weeks enjoying activities from Trampolining and visits to the local fire station, to bowling and Sensory sessions !

Buxton and District Summer Club is a play scheme for children and young people aged 5 - 17 years with disabilities and been running for 30 years and could not run without the amount of community support we recieve
from Individuals, local businesses, the generous loan of mini buses and a great venue at Buxton Community School.
Many of the children/young people have very high needs which range from medical, physical and challenging behaviour. They are often isolated through the long summer holidays which causes extra pressure for families.

The club gives families much needed respite during a long summer holiday with the reassurance they are cared for by experienced care staff with the support of around 40 volunteers, but more importantly it gives disabled children the chance to enjoy activities supported by their able bodied peers and also gives young volunteers a chance to give their time to their community and also benefit from the excellent training provided by Peak School.

Charity No: 1106360
