Sailing for kids with SEND/SEMH
The Ahoy sailing centre in Deptford is launching three exciting new subsidised programmes for children and young people with SEND. Here's what they say: "We are able to offer these at £10 per head/per session as our charity has secured grant funding towards the costs. We would be delighted to work with your young people and give them the opportunity of benefiting from these fun and engaging programmes, so please do let me know if you are interested."
