BPV Family Fun Day – 9th April 2016

Bromley Parent Voice held our first Family Fun Day for children and young people with additional needs and their families.

We were delighted that the Mayor of Bromley joined us to officially ‘open’ the Day and was able to chat to many of the parents and organisations who attended the event.

The day was a great success with many families joining in the activities available on the day which included cricket, football and dancing. We had a Games Wagon where there was a host of games consoles to play on. The children also enjoyed a bouncy castle and they were able to create some fantastic craft creations and join in on music sessions.

We were also joined by many of the Bromley Organisations that support social and leisure activities for children and young people with additional needs in the borough.

Families had opportunities to get to know each other and share information whilst enjoying a cuppa and some of the delicious cakes we had donated to us.

Through our work on the Local Offer and Social Care Innovation Fund project we have heard how important it is for children, young people with SEND and their families to have ‘Time for Me’.

The aim of the day was to have fun, give parents, children and young people the opportunity to network and to make families aware of some the leisure opportunities for children and young people with SEND in the LB Bromley.

We are hoping to plan more Fun days so look out for future announcements.

Here’s what the parents told us:

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Bromley Parent voice and everyone involved in last Saturday's Family Day. My daughter had a lovely day enjoying the football, bouncy castles and Magpie dance. As always a very well organised, fun packed day. Look forward to the next BPV event.
...WELL DONE for organising such a fab Fun Day!! Our kids loved it all - a brill way to end the Easter hols. In terms of the way you orchestrated it we thought it was just the right balance of free range fun and organised 'things to do'. Some interesting stalls too and networking opportunities with other parents etc. helping to make the community more robust. Really well done and most of all, thanks!
What worked well was by the middle of the event, different organisations were referring people onto other organisations which were more suitable for their needs. That was really good to see and be a part of. Really enjoyed myself and my gosh the cake was delicious!
