Young people with disabilities are being given the opportunity to get outdoors and stuck into some free wildlife fun over half term.

Staffordshire Wildlife Trust is running an exciting Wildplay session on Wednesday 23 April at 10am-3pm at their Highgate Common Nature Reserve near Wombourne.

The session, funded by Staffordshire County Council’s Aiming High for Disabled Children Programme, provide targeted sessions for children aged 8-14 years with disabilities and additional needs.


Sarah Rodgers, people and wildlife officer at Staffordshire Wildlife Trust said:

“These sessions, run by our expert staff, are a great way for young people with disabilities and additional needs to discover the delights of the natural world through activities such as pond dipping and outdoor games.”

Children should wear suitable outdoor clothing and bring a packed lunch.
