We have an established team of childcare workers who work between the projects. They have a wide range of skills and abilities and are trained in the administration of life saving medications as required for specific young people. Staff are trained in Early Years Childcare, food hygiene, first aid, Makaton, autism awareness and safeguarding children. Staff are DBS checked, we will try to ensure it is in place before a new member begins. Parents are welcome to visit the Club to see if their young person will enjoy the sessions.
