What we'll do
Barnet Play Scheme is a safe, inclusive space for autistic children and young people to engage in fun activities, build friendships and develop social skills. Experienced professionals provide support and guidance, while parents and caregivers can take a break. Join us for sensory play, games, music and more. One of the key goals of the Play Club is to help autistic children and young people build positive relationships with their peers. By providing a safe and inclusive environment where they can interact with other autistic individuals, they will be able to form connections and build friendships that can last a lifetime. Please register your interest now and then we will be in touch to confirm places.
About your mentor
Resources for Autism
Support autistic individuals and families
We provide a person-centred support to autistic individuals and those who love and care for them, and by developing organisations in the wider society that are aware and inclusive of neurodivergence. We have been supporting autism for over 25 years, helping over 2,000 beneficiaries and 5,000 family members every year. Founded by Dr Hartley Booth OBE in 1997 during his time as an MP in response to families concerned about the lack of available support for autistic people and their families. With a miniscule budget and one paly group, the organisation started offering services to a small number of families in North London and grew. We love getting to know each individual and exploring their passions and challenges – whether this be physical, emotional or social. We operate across Greater London and the West Midlands and are driven by an ethos of absolute acceptance of each individual exactly as they are; from a place of true understanding. We have found that this can take many forms; developing resilient parents and resilient children, hands-on training and consultancy, services centred around individuals interests and goals ranging from Music Therapy to Social clubs.

My experience is an educational activity and the 14-day cooling-off period under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 therefore applies. After the 14 day period my standard policy will apply.
