About Weekenders Club

Weekenders Club is a play scheme providing a short break for children and young people with additional needs aged 5-18 in the Leeds area.

Weekenders Club is open 47 weeks a year and we operate out of Vine Education Centre, which is based in the Headlingley/Kirkstall area.

Children and young people who attend Weekenders Club can access the club once every four weeks for six and a half hours on either a Saturday or a Sunday. When a child is allocated a group, this group stays the same for each visit.

We operate a high staff-to-child ratio; our minimum staffing level is 2:1. All of our staff are experiences and well trained, and work alongside dedicated volunteers to enhance the service we provide.

The groups start at 10:00am and finish at 4:30pm. Please ensure your child brings a packed lunch and a drink with them. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide transport.

What we do at Weekenders Club

Vine is a venue that provides safe outdoor space, large indoor spaces and personal care suites.

There are lots of resources for children and young people, including a bouncy castle, a ball pool, adapted bikes and sensory equipment.

We also provide activities such as baking, arts and crafts and sports activities. We also welcome specialist workers, such as sports specialists, Zumba instructors and children’s entertainers.
