Nurturing Neurodiversity

Nurturing Neurodiversity is tailored to support and connect communities of neurodiverse children, young people and their families.

This branch of HARE, will be kick-started by a series of 'Accessible Crafts' sessions, funded by the National Heritage Lottery.

Neurodiverse Communities with Traditional Crafts  

Our Accessible Crafts sessions are brought to you by our new service, Nurturing Neurodiversity. We're here to support neurodivergent children (aged 6-12) through, traditional craft workshops tailored to their needs. Craft isn't just about creating—it's therapeutic, reducing stress and boosting self-esteem. In our nature-based environment, children explore woodwork, pottery, and more, led by experienced staff.

These sessions are tailored to foster a sense of community and support. Parents/carers can drop off their children at the gate after registration. Collection will take place in the same location at 3:30pm.

Our aim is to create an inclusive environment where everyone feels accepted and valued for who they are and part of the group.  Participants can come together to share the experience of learning various crafts. Each week, we'll dive into a new craft together, forging connections and building new skills. Join us and be part of a space where children feel understood and empowered. Let's thrive together!

Small Group

These small group sessions, tailored to create a safe and supportive environment, are crafted to nurture children aged 6-12 with complex needs such as Autism, ADHD, and Global Developmental Delay. They are specifically designed for children who are not able to access our other group workshops due to needing a small group size, or who need additional adult support.

Please feel free to phone or whatsapp us on 07761164352 to discuss your child's needs and whether this group is right for them, or if you have any other queries.
