What parents say about the play scheme ...

“the only play-scheme of this high standard, and really benefits my child”

“far superior to any other schemes I have used - structured, well organised and run by highly trained staff”


“simply the best. The support is first-class, knowledgeable and we have the reassurance that he is totally safe and well cared for”


 “Having an autism-specific provision is especially important, as our son is unable to access most play-schemes and reliant on us for the whole holiday, which is very arduous”


“At this play-scheme, they are cared for rather than contained. Children are recognised as individuals”


“The play-scheme provided 18 hours of respite to me over the summer. interAKtive is making a big contribution to the needs of carers”


“My wife and I enjoyed the novelty of being a ‘normal’ family (while he was at the scheme)”


“It gives me valuable time to spend with my other younger child, who tends to get over-whelmed when he (his brother) is at home”


"The happy, positive environment created was marvellous .I felt they all cared genuinely about my son"


“The ratio of staff to children was fantastic; the staff were knowledgeable, experienced and very keen. I was more than happy to leave him every day”
