Play therapy

Our environment helps play happen at all times and promotes holistic care for our children and young people at the hospice – including social opportunities, new experiences and therapeutic play and activities. Individual assessments are carried out on communication, abilities, development and play/activity needs. Our sessions are tailored to promote choice and maintain and encourage developmental skills – and we work very hard to make sure that all activities are appropriate to a child’s age, ability and culture. We also provide inclusive sessions for families through outreach play ‘gymbaroo’ and activity days.
