We provide services for children and young people with learning disabilities aged 5 to 25 including those with physical disabilities, autism, complex communication, and behavioural needs.
We want to make a positive impact on the lives of children and young people with disabilities and their families and aim to enhance their life opportunities by providing play, outreach, short breaks, after school clubs, counselling and family support services to support children and young people to be active and contributing members of their community.
Our vision is to provide engaging, inclusive, and innovative play and experiential opportunities, which enable learning disabled children and young people to develop their social and emotional resilience in readiness for an active and fulfilling adulthood.
News & Updates
Dear parents I am excited to announce the following activities that will take place during October half-term at KCA:
We are starting a partnership with Arts For Life Project this half-term to further enhance the experiences of children and young people who attend our play and youth schemes. Children will have the opportunity to take part in creative arts workshops with the aim to support them to be happier and healthier. Arts For Life Project will be delivering 2 sessions for our play scheme and 1 session for our youth scheme.
It is part of our mission to ensure that children with learning disabilities are included in decision making within their community. Harrow People Services Directorate is undertaking a review of local short breaks services available for children and young people with disabilities and their families, in order to ensure that they provide services that offer choice and meet the needs of families and their children. Parents and carers have being invited to participate in the consultation process. Using our experience of past consultations we are working hand in hand with Harrow to help children and young people who attend our half-term schemes to be part the consultation process and we will offer the opportunity to all children to express their wishes.’
Ilias Kostalas, KCA Service Manager
