Taking Part is an overarching organisation who provides advice, information, advocacy and guidance to people with health and care needs throughout Shropshire including Telford and Wrekin. The core aims of Taking Part are to promote choice, increase independence and inclusion and uphold individual rights. Our activities are wide and varied but all are designed to provide a supportive and engaging environment that allows participants to enjoy themselves and join in as it suits them best. Taking Part deliver Moving & Grooving as part of the All In Short Breaks offer.
Parent Carers are welcomed to join our private Facebook Group where you can connect with and support each other, engage with us, and where we can share resources and more with you too.
If your child / young person requires 1:1 support to allow them to participate in our activities, we kindly ask that a Personal Assistant or family member attends with them to provide any support needed.
If your child / young person requires a full changing facility with hoist, please check with us about facility access.

What our sessions will include:
We will start and end each session in a calm and inclusive manner, to set the tone and expectations of the session, and provide a safe environment for any concerns to be discussed one to one or within the group. We will provide a ‘chill out’ area for when participants need to have some quiet time. We will provide a FAQ resource (to include travel, price, toilets etc information) to all families so they are aware what to expect from Taking Part and our programme of events. We will provide a separate room for parents and carers to continue to offer each other peer support whilst their children are engaged. The Community Centre also has good kitchen facilities which will be used for planned activities and for refreshment provision for the children and families.
