serennu activities...

We run an extensive range of regular clubs and activities for all ages throughout school term and holidays. We also run a variety of fun seasonal events. And, don’t forget, 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 we offer. This has now been extended to include children and young people who are not necessarily receiving treatment and care at Serennu but have a diagnosis of complex development delay or disability which is evidenced by a health care or social care professional who has been involved in child/young person’s diagnosis, or undergoing a diagnosis of a disability 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 run 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 or developmental difficulty from Newport, Mid/South Torfaen & South Monmouthshire.

play activities

We run a play club at Serennu Children’s Centre for all school age children (up to and including age 10,) who have a disability 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

We aim to provide children & young people with a disability 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.
