Classes for siblings of children with special needs


We provide fun fitness classes for siblings of children with special needs. These classes offer the children a chance to switch off, have fun and build a little community with children with similar experiences to themselves. We encourage them to support each other, to develop new skills, to improve their mental health and most of all to have fun in a safe environment where they can avail of the support offered by our coaches and their peers.

Our classes are non-competitive and inclusive. The focus is on participation and enjoyment. We encourage the children to get involved and help design the classes to give them ownership and a sense of belonging. We want them to feel valued, develop new skills, improve existing skills and have fun.

We offer a wide variety of games, activities, team building and challenges in our classes. Our aim is always to build communities not classes and we want your child to be a part of that.

Our classes offer something for everybody, the children are active for the whole time that they are with us. There’s no queuing for your turn and we constantly change and update our games and programmes to ensure that they are fresh, interesting and appealing to the children.
