 Young people can enjoy activities such as: climbing walls, giant inflatables, zorbing, human table football, woodwork, trampolining, archery, bushcraft.

Day trips can also be purchased, including: paintballing, theme parks, horse riding, laser tag, circus workshops, ice skating, canoeing, aqua park.


FISH is an inclusive scheme, with subsidised transport, concessionary rates and support available for young people with additional needs.

Key worker support: key workers provide constant one-to-one support to young people who have additional needs and would otherwise not be able to attend the scheme.

Buddy support: buddy support is occasional support and reassurance from a play worker. Staff and young people move around the FISH site freely, the buddy will not be with the young people at all times but they will check on them a number of times a day.  

Please indicate during the booking process whether your child will need additional support, or phone 01483 444769 to discuss further.


We would love to receive feedback from parents, staff and young people who have accessed the scheme. Please see the related pages section to access the relevant online feedback form.
