The Sleepover Club
All too often children with additional needs are deprived of opportunities and challenges that their non-disabled peers have which enable them to mature and grow in confidence, such as sleeping over at a friend’s house. Often the organisation of sleepovers is carried out in the school playground, where parents can get together at drop off and collection times, however for some families the 'playground' meeting room does not exist, and thus opportunity to plan events is missed.
Our Sleepover Club allows the children to experience the fun of a sleepover with a group of friends in a safe, structured and inclusive manner. This gives the formative experience of a sleepover with friends to differently abled children who are often neglected of such experiences.
The Sleepover club is to have a membership scheme whereby members are entitled to one sleepover a month, with up to four other friends who are members. Children ages 8-16 years with additional needs, are eligible for membership.
The Sleepover Club registration fee is £20 which includes:
- The Group Planning Sessions
- The Admin Fees
There is also a £40 cost for each sleepover club session.

Achieving Aspirations have been given some grant funding from Activities Unlimited to pilot a new short break service, a 'sleepover club', which aims to replicate the sleeping over with friend’s experience, in a safe and structured, Ofsted registered service. Membership of the club will also provide parents with a regular break from caring responsibilities, confident that their children are safe and having fun.
We are very interested in your views on this proposed service, and invite you to complete and return the questionnaire attached, which allows space for any questions, clarifications or ideas for inclusion in the service.
