Statement regarding the Summer Playscheme 2020

You will be aware that community activities continue to have significant restrictions on how or whether they can operate. This is with regard to Government guidance regarding the Coronavirus pandemic.

Telford & Wrekin Council will continue to work with families who have significant support needs through their allocated Case Workers or Social Workers. We know that families understand that the Government guidelines and advice remains in place about minimising contacts and social distancing, all of which can be challenging. We remain committed to supporting children and families. We thank families for their continued understanding of the complexities and that provisions have to be based on a social care needs led risk assessment. 

Telford & Wrekin Council will not be able to offer the usual playscheme at either The Bridge School or The Willow Tree over the summer holiday period, due to the current restrictions.

There will be a ‘Stay & Play’ provision, but this will be for a small number of children and young people based on social care needs. The places are limited due to the implementation of the Government guidance.

Case Workers and Social Workers will be contacting families who have been allocated a place.

Telford & Wrekin Council understands that many families may find the summer holiday period challenging. If you find yourself in this position please contact your allocated worker from the Children with Disabilities Team. If you do not have an allocated worker contact Family Connect on 01952 385385.
