Ipswich Opportunity Group

Registered Activities

We are a support group for families who have pre-school aged children with additional needs. We provide appropriate play activities for the children in a large playroom as well as support for parents/carers who stay for sessions. Parent/carers have the opportunity for some time to themselves in a quiet room while staff and volunteers look after the children. As well as staff supporting parents, parents are also very supportive of each other.
