Acctivate Children’s Club

Following the release of the Government’s guidance on Protective measures for out-of-school settings during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Acctivate is opening up for the six week holidays! ACCT Clubs will look very different with all the changes we’ve made in response to Covid-19. To protect our community, everyone attending ACCT clubs must maintain good hygiene, hand washing and social distancing.

Please note that our clubs may be changed regularly in line with Government guidance changes as we progress through this pandemic. We recommend that parents and carers keep up-to-date with the latest Government guidance. Parents have a responsibility to make sure they and their children know what to expect when attending ACCT Clubs, and understand the importance of good hygiene, hand washing and social distancing.

We will also continue to have activities available online – weekly Acctivate and Teenage Club Minecraft, weekly Dungeons and Dragons via Zoom and fortnightly Parents Meetings via Zoom.

Please get in touch if you are interested in attending any of these club

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, Bramall Lane, Sheffield unless otherwise stated.
