SNAP is a purpose built adventure play and recreation facility offering an extensive range of play opportunities both indoor and outdoor for children and adults with special needs. There is a soft play area with ball pool, a room with computers and console gaming and a sensory room. There are appropriate toilet facilities, a changing bed and a hoist. There is an extensive secure play area with a cycle track, age appropriate trikes, a large sand pit, zip wire, trampoline, slides and wheelchair accessible swings and roundabouts. It is also used as a party venue for all children, and parent and toddler sessions during the school day.
Schools visit SNAP as part of their out of school activities. It provides a relief from the normal school curriculum, and allows staff to observe how the children interact with each other. They also observe the development of confidence in using the equipment.
Adult organisations and carers visit SNAP with adult users in order to provide some stimulation. Life skill workers provide a range of activities including cookery and craft. Parents, carers and users from the whole of the West Midlands, Birmingham and the Surrounding Shire Counties utilise SNAP.
Children and adults visiting SNAP have fun, gain confidence, make friends, feel comfortable and are able to be themselves. Parents and carers are able to relax safe in the knowledge that their children are accepted whatever challenging behaviour they exhibit.
