Short Breaks

As part of Ability for All programme, we now offer the opportunity for parents/carers to stay and take part in the activities with their children. In addition you can have a short break by leaving your child with a designated member of staff to support the child, allowing you to remain on site but go for a coffee with other parents or take the opportunity to do another activity for your own health & wellbeing e.g. use the fitness suite, classes. swimming etc.

Note – If you are interested in accessing the short break service please speak to a member of the team to arrange before attending the first session. The short break service does not apply to the Activ8 and Alpha Swim activities.

Everybody Health & Leisure have been commissioned to deliver the following Short Break activities from the 1st June, please keep checking our website for more information on session dates and how to book these sessions (booking via Eventbrite will be essential before attending), more details will be released soon for these sessions starting on the 1st June.

Inclusive Cycling

Inclusive Cycling sessions are for children who might find cycling on a two wheeled bike more challenging.

We have a range of adapted bikes to support disabled children to learn basic cycling skills or just have some fun cycling. The bikes allow service users who can’t cycle independently the opportunity to be involved and take part in cycling with the support of our staff.

The Inclusive Cycling sessions will be held at:

Alsager Leisure Centre and Macclesfield Leisure Centre on alternative Sundays starting at 1.30pm and 2.30pm.

These sessions will be small numbers (maximum of 5 children per session). Helmets will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own helmet if you prefer.

Activity Hub

Activity Hubs are a fortnightly multi-sport and play session at Holmes Chapel Leisure Centre between 10am and 12pm. The Hub will offer a variety of activities including multi sports such as soft archery, new age curling, racket and ball sports, bowling, football, dodgeball, there will be  arts/crafts and board games.

The different activities will be adapted to make sure they are suitable for all ages and ability levels. This ensures people enjoy the session, develop social skills and explore their abilities.

Activ8 soft play

Activ8 sessions allow children to try out new activities and let off steam without fear of being judged. Children can play on the specialist soft play equipment, and get creative with arts and crafts, supervised by our friendly coaches and volunteers.

The sessions will run every month on a Monday evening and take place at two venues – Fun 4 All in Macclesfield and Playworld in Shavington.

The sessions allow families the opportunity to visit a soft play centre to have a go, try out new activities supervised by Everybody’s staff and let off steam without fear of being judged. Feedback has highlighted the soft play sessions help improve confidence and independence, make new friends whilst keeping active. Parents have also commented they relax knowing their child is safe, supervised and not being judged.

School Holidays

During the School Holidays we will deliver a range of activities to keep young people engaged and rotate these activities at venues across the borough to enable families to access them.  The holiday programme may include multi-sports such as soft archery, boccia, football etc. Inclusive cycling, indoor climbing and outdoor water based activities to name a few.

Alpha Splash & Play

Splash & Play is a 6-week block of pool sessions to encourage children to be more relaxed, have fun whilst developing basic safety awareness and swimming capability. The sessions will be in small groups, with an appropriate ratio, conducive to aid learning and support the swimmers needs.

Once service users have completed the 6-week programme, they will have the opportunity to progress joining the Alpha Swim Scheme.
