Eureka! free interactive sessions for disabled children

Eureka! is offering free Saturday and holiday clubs for disabled children and their families.

In the third year of the award winning Helping Hands Project, the National Children’s Museum, Halifax, will offer fun activities as of September 7 - with the first three Saturday sessions dedicated to autistic children up to the age of five.

Sessions are overseen by specially trained staff and are followed by a guided visit to a different area of the museum each week. Free lunch is also served.

Throughout October, sessions will focus on activities designed to cater to children with impaired hearing. November and December activities will meet the needs of children with Down Syndrome - with more classes scheduled in the new year.

Leanne Davies, mother to Jack aged six, said: “The clubs are a great opportunity for the whole family to get involved and have some fun.”

Eureka!’s Helping Hands Project won bronze in the Access for All category of the 2013 VisitEngland Awards for Excellence in May 2013.
