The Steve Morgan Foundation has awarded a grant of £74, 647 to the SPACE centre in Chester, which provides accessible play for children with additional needs and their families.
The Foundation’s grant is funding the salary of SPACE’s Charity Manager, whilst the charity has also sourced additional funds from elsewhere, including the Williams Family Foundation and the National Lottery’s Awards for All scheme.
SPACE has been running play sessions in hired community rooms for over four years and, in October 2018, acquired their own premises in Chester.
The centre offers play sessions for children of all ages and abilities, specialist equipment to ensure all activities are accessible, an interactive sensory room and a resource room for parents and carers to include information, advice and counselling services.
The second phase of development due to open this summer will involve the installation of a specially designed soft play frame which will be accessible for a range of activities.
