Interplay sessions are due to start back on Monday 8th January. Currently we are able to do this. However, due to an increase in winter viruses and Covid, we cannot guarantee that we will always have enough staff to deliver sessions safely. Due to the health and safety of children and young people, their families and staff we may have to cancel sessions at short notice, in these cases we will give as much notice as possible. Where possible we will make sure sessions happen, but we would also ask that children and young people who are poorly do not attend sessions. Many of the children accessing our sessions have reduced immune systems and it is important that we consider the safety of all that attend. Many thanks with your support with this going forwards as we brave the winter months.

"We do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing."

(George Bernard Shaw)

Interplay provides access to play and leisure opportunities for children and young people with additional needs aged 2-25 who find it difficult to access the same mainstream play, leisure and social activities as their peers.

We work with children at all levels from profound and multiple disability, learning disabilities, physical impairments, sensory impairments, autism, adhd and challenging behaviour - our main criteria is that without additional support these young people would not be able to gain access to play and leisure opportunities.

We run weekly term time play provision, youth clubs, summer schemes and residentials. Interplay aims to ensure that the standard of play and leisure provision is exemplary, particularly in projects or activities that are organised by Interplay. To do this, Interplay promotes best practice in recruitment, employment, training, supervision and monitoring of all it’s workers.

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL OFF OUR FACE-TO-FACE PROVISION IS RUN UNDER STRICT COVID-19 GUIDELINES AND ADHERES TO WELSH GOVERNMENT AND PUBLIC HEALTH WALES GUIDANCE TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THE CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE WE SUPPORT, THEIR FAMILIES AND OUR STAFF TEAM. IN THE EVENT OF THERE BEING AN INCREASED RISK OF INFECTION AND NEW LOCKDOWN MEAURES ARE PUT IN PLACE ALL OF OUR PROVISION WILL REVERT TO DIGITAL ONLY PROVISION. 

During the current COVID-19 Pandemic it is very important for everyone to follow the Welsh Governement guidance to stop the spread of infection and to help combat this, Interplay has changed it's provision to ensure the safety of the children and young people we support, as well as the Interplay staff team and  their families. We understand that for the children and young people we support, time away from face to face play sessions and youth groups means not being able to contact friends and socialise, and therefore we are doing our best to help you all stay connected and active.
