SNAPS (Special Needs and Parent Support) is a charity which supports children with additional needs and their families through the provision of rebound therapy, hydrotherapy (both delivered by highly trained paediatric physiotherapists), swimming and play for the whole family. This play might be music therapy, music for fun, dance, sing and sign, boccia, soft play or arts and crafts. We believe it is important to provide social opportunities for the whole family including siblings; with the child with special needs utilising either hydro or rebound and then having fun with the rest of the family through our other activities. We offer a safe and welcoming environment where your child can benefit from specialist physiotherapy, you can meet other families and you all can play together. You do not need a professional referral to access SNAPS services.
We operate between 9.15am and 1.30pm on term time Saturdays at two sites:
Penny Field School, Tongue Lane, Meanwood, North Leeds. Penny Field is the North West SILC in Leeds. Hydro, swimming and rebound therapy available.
Broomfield School, Broom Place, Belle Isle, South Leeds. Broomfield is the South SILC in Leeds. Rebound therapy and sensory room available.
We also offer a football club for children with additional needs and their siblings. We believe every child should have the opportunity to join a sports club and enjoy the fun that comes with it. It runs 10.30-11.30am every Sunday in term time at the Hunslet Club, Hillidge Road, Leeds LS10 1BP. Children between 4 and 16 of all abilities are welcome.
