Playskill is a Herts based charity providing free specialist support to physically disabled pre-school aged children through therapist led playgroups. While playing with their peers, each child receives therapy from a Physiotherapist, a Speech and Language Therapist and an Occupational Therapist. While the children are playing they are learning key life skills such as learning to walk, talk, communicate or feed themselves. 

We provide free specialist training, delivered online throughout the term. This training is delivered by specialists and are tailored to the needs of the children. We also work hard to create supportive and social environments among our parent/carers through free respite events. 

Playskill rapidly adapted its service to be completely remote in response to the pandemic. Our training moved online and we ran online social events for our families. With approximately 90% of the children falling in the extremely vulnerable category and told to shield, we knew that this crucial developmental window could not be lost.

Our service is currently predominately in person with fewer children per session, with one group remaining virtual for our vulnerable children.

With increase pressure on NHS and services, demand for Playskill has only increased with families reporting long waiting lists for referrals and appointment times. This has led to the launch of our Springboard project which provides advice and basic support completely remotely to those children and families who otherwise would have been on our waiting list.
