Serennu activities...

The Sparkle Team offers a unique and diverse selection of clubs and activities for all ages during term time and the school holidays. There is also a fun range of seasonal event days for the whole family to get involved with, 4 events are currently held a year, information about these will be displayed around the centre closer to the time.  

We try to ensure that there is a club for everyone, every disability, every age and to every taste but we would love you to let us know if there is a particular activity you would like us to consider running in the future. Please contact the activities team on 01633 748093 or email abb_sparkleactivities@wales.nhs.uk.

Previously children and young people had to be receiving treatment and care at Serennu children’s centre to access some of the services and activities on offer. This has now been extended to include children and young people who are not necessarily receiving treatment and care at the centre but have a diagnosis of a disability and/or developmental difficulty which is evidenced by a health care or social care professional that has been involved in the child/young person’s diagnosis, or undergoing a diagnosis of a disability and/or developmental difficulty which is evidenced by a health care or social care professional.

To access activities, all children/young people will need to submit a referral form to the activities team. When the referral form has been received, a Sparkle member of staff will contact the family to invite them into the centre to complete a personal profile and discuss which activities would best meet the child / young person’s needs

Sporting activities

We have specific clubs dedicated to sporting activities where children & young people can learn and develop basic skills, in a safe yet fun environment. Siblings are often welcome to these sessions. These sessions are open to any child or young person with a disability and/or developmental difficulty from Newport, South Torfaen and South Monmouthshire.

Play activities

We run various play clubs at Serennu Children’s Centre for all children (up to and including age 10) who have a disability and/or developmental difficulty. The club, which is funded through the generous participation of Families First, will give your child the opportunity to play and interact with other children, make new friends and have fun.

Holiday activities

Sparkle aim to provide children & young people with a disability and/or developmental difficulty with the opportunity to take part in a variety of activities during most school holidays. Sparkle will run activities such as cooking, messy play, sensory session & family swim. Activity schedules will be posted well in advance of each school holiday and will also be found on the What’s On page.

Independent living club

Independent Living Club is a unique group for young people aged 14– 17 to help them develop independent living skills in a safe yet fun environment. Young people attending the club will have the opportunity to relax with their peers whilst focusing on an independent living skills element, where there will be opportunities to take part in cookery, managing money, personal hygiene, keeping safe, social skills, learning how to use public transport, internet safety and much more.

After school clubs

Children & young people attending the after school clubs will have the opportunity to play and unwind with their peers in a safe and fully equiped enviroment. The club offers stimulating activities that encourage learning in a fun and exciting way.
