Children and Young People Services

Are you the parent or carer of a child or young person with a learning disability aged 5 – 19? Are you looking for fun and inclusive opportunities and activities which will enable your child to make new friends and develop their skills? If yes, then look no further!

Our group based short break provision is aimed at anybody between 5-19, with autism, complex needs, learning disabilities, mental health conditions and other associated conditions. We provide services across the West Midlands including Coventry, Birmingham, North Warwickshire and Worcester.

From after school clubs, school holiday provision, weekend activities to accredited courses to Outdoor Adventure programmes! Midland Mencap’s extensive service helps young people make friends, have fun and grow in their social and emotional wellbeing.

Short Breaks

Midland Mencap offer short break sessions for our children and young people in the Birmingham area on weekends, after school and school holidays. These sessions are fun and inclusive for children aged up to 19. Activities include arts and crafts, local walks, sporting sessions and free play.

After School Clubs

Midland Mencap’s After School club at the Weoley Castle Community Centre offers child care for children from reception to year 6. The after school club is open in school term time every Monday to Friday 3pm-6pm.

We cover local schools in the Weoley Castle area including Paganel, Jervoise, Princethorpe, and St Rose. New local schools are also welcome. Every child will be picked up on the walking bus by our staff who are experienced level 3 qualified play workers.

The cost is £9.50 per session which includes fun and creative activities, a safe environment for children and a healthy snack. For an additional £1.50 your child can also have a hot dinner provided on a two-week rotating menu.
