Saturday Night BIG Sleep Over Project
Due to new regulations on overnight provision, ELHAP is currently applying for registration with OFSTED for holidays for disabled children. Until we have completed the registration, the Sleep Over Project is not running.
The Saturday Night BIG Sleep Over Project is specifically for teenagers over the age of 13 years with disabilities who want to hang out with friends.
To attend young people will need the following:
- A desire to attend the ELHAP Saturday Night BIG Sleep Over’s (rather than other types of overnight respite)
- Have an interest in developing friendships
- Able to cope with the physical limitations and demands of a sleep over
- Be over 13 years of age (we may in exceptional circumstances allow slightly young people to attend)
Each Sleep Over will run from 6pm Saturday night to 11am Sunday morning for up to nine young people (each Sleep Over will be single sex). At each Sleep Over there will be a number of arranged activities, such as beauty sessions, sports matches, dance classes, late night bonfires and karaoke competitions, which young people can choose to join in with. The other parts of the Sleep Overs will be service user led, allowing young people to decide what they want to do at their sleepover and this does not have to include sleep!
