A summary
MK Film Club has been awarded funding from Milton Keynes City Council to deliver sessions for Short Breaks, which are designated for families and carers of children and young people with disabilities and additional needs. To be eligible for for this Short Break activity, the child or young person must: be between 5 and 18 years and have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP). Only children/young people require tickets and parent/carers are not required to stay at these sessions or book a ticket. We have trained SEND staff members to look after and support the attendees. We have created an exciting opportunity for the children to show off their talents and learn new ones whilst exploring their creativity in our own Milton Keynes Talent Show! We will have the opportunity to learn all about valuable skills both behind and in front of the camera. They will be filming their talents, prop making(drawing, painting), learning the fundamentals of acting for screen and most importantly making friends. The children will have the chance to explore existing talents as well as providing props (and making our own) to learn new skills. Such as: Magic sets, hula hoops, plastic spinning plates and many more! Not forgetting that we will need our presenters and judges. We will also have off screen activities for children who are not ready to join in, such as, drawing, creating & ice breaker games suitable for all ages. We will have 3:12 staff to children ratio, meaning we are able to support 1:1 needs where possible. We are based in one room upstairs, with space outside the room to wander with an adult if any quiet time might be needed. Sessions will take place at Bletchley Youth Centre, Derwent Drive, West Bletchley, MK3 7BE

Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
