Acctivate Children’s Club

Following the Government’s guidance, ACCT has made the decision to cancel all in-person activities until further notice.

We want to reassure members that ACCT will still be running throughout this unprecedented and uncertain time to offer you all support. We are in the process of moving activities online – see our page on our Minecraft Club, which will take place at the same time as our usual weekly ACCTivate and Teenage Club.

We have lots of ideas to move support online and will be working hard in the coming days to set this up. We will be available via email and the club mobile, and will be sending out regular emails and posting on social media to keep you connected.

We are aware that lots of our families are already isolated and self isolating is going to extend that further, along with the increased anxiety that many of us are feeling. We are asking all of you to please reach out to us if you need support and we will do all that we can to help.

Kind Regards
The ACCT Team

Acctivate is a club on Saturdays for children aged 5-12 with Asperger’s syndrome or High Functioning Autism and their siblings. Current activities include computers, board games, lego, art, outdoor fun, a sensory room, and much more!

Children with Asperger’s syndrome or High Functioning Autism aged five and over are welcome to stay without their parents or carers after ACCT staff have registered their details and support needs.

We also welcome younger children, siblings and parents of course if they wish to stay. In addition, we have a parent carer room with hot drinks where adults can meet to chat and support  each other. Parents and Carers are very welcome to meet here even if their child does not attend Acctivate.

 

Pre-booking is essential as places are limited. To book a place call or text Nicola on 07527 824034 or email  nicola.hough@acctsheffield.org.uk. We have a waiting list should the clubs be full so you can text or call on the day of the club to check availability.

Sessions run every Saturday of the year from 9.45am to 12.15pm apart from two weeks over Christmas. If, for unforeseen circumstances, a session has to be cancelled then members will be notified.

Acctivate is held at St Mary’s Pavilion Room, Bramall Lane, Sheffield  unless otherwise stated.
