If you are unable to attend any of the consultation meetings AFC are happy to meet parents/carers on an individual or group basis.

PLEASE NOTE:
VENUE:
AFC have tried to access Severndale School as a venue for part of their summer play scheme, in line with some parents/carers preferences, but unfortunately due to major contracting work this will not be possible and therefore the venue for the play scheme will be The Priory School, Longden Road, Shrewsbury, SY3 9EE.
AFC are aware that some parent/carer preferences for Severndale School as a venue are due to the hydro pool, sensory room and soft play facilities which are available there.  AFC would like to reassure parents/carers that these facilities are provided through accessing external hydro pool/sensory facilities and hiring soft play/inflatable equipment which is available on all venue days.  Also please note that AFC hire the whole of the Priory School and therefore have access to all areas such as: sports hall, IT suite, arts room, secure outside areas, playing fields etc.  There are also disabled changing facilities and areas available to AFC at all times.
 
TRANSPORT:
AFC would like to inform parents/carers that if there is a demand for support in transporting children/young people from the wider areas of Shropshire then they are more than willing to look at ways to help parents/carers.
