BOSP Brighter Opportunities through Supported Play

Adult's Services

BOSP SATURDAY CLUB

10.00am to 3.30pm (5.5 hours) at the Pioneer School, Ghyllgrove, Basildon, SS14 2LA 

The BOSP Saturday Club is run out of the Pioneer School in Basildon. The fantastic facilities at the school allow us to provide the young adults with the consistency that so many thrive on. Young adults attending have the opportunity to go swimming in the hydrotherapy pool where our trained lifeguards for the disabled ensure that the environment caters for the individual with appropriate music and lighting. The interactive soft play room and the adventure playground are extremely popular with the more active, who enjoy burning off excess energy. BOSP hires highly qualified outside trainers to provide music, dance and sports coaching. The young people also have the opportunity to spend time in two sensory rooms as well as try their hand at cooking, arts and crafts and messy play.

Swimming kit and a packed lunch and drinks are needed.

LET'S CONNECT CLUB

10.00am to 3.30pm (5.5 hours) Out & About and at the Pioneer School, Ghyllgrove, Basildon, SS14 2LA

At BOSP's Let's Connect Club, the young adults meet at the Pioneer School then leave to spend the morning enjoying social activities such as bowling, Drop-Zone, climbing wall or the cinema, along with lunch.

The Pioneer School lies within close reach of the Festival Leisure Park and Basildon Town Centre, which provide greater opportunities for encouraging independence and life skills in the local community, whilst supporting the young person's personal development.

Thanks to help from The People's Postcode Lottery Trust, this club allows the young people to practise life skills, such as handling money, decision making, turn taking and road safety. After lunch out in a restaurant, the youngsters then return to the Pioneer School for the afternoon session where they can enjoy any of the other activities and catch up with their friends.

Sometimes Let's Connect goes further afield, utilising BOSP's wheelchair accessible mini-bus, to places such as Southend, Crazy Golf, Foot Golf in Brentwood.
