How we deliver these aimsWe run inclusive after school clubs and holiday playschemes where disabled and non-disabled children play together. Markfield’s highly trained staff are experienced in including children with a wide range of disabilities. We have youth clubs in the afternoon and evening with music, art, sport, films, where young people can socialise, relax and choose activities they enjoy. Our daytime and evening social clubs for adults with learning disabilities, autism or Aspergers Syndrome include dance, art, trips and discussion groups. We have a wide range of family support services running at Markfield and outreach at other local venues. Our services aim to empower families to advocate for their rights, access services and participate in decision making. We focus on ways families can build supportive networks and get involved in the local community. We offer face to face and telephone advice, an information hub, free parent group coffee mornings and a monthly family club. We also community drop in sessions for all local families such as our Saturday Open Access adventure play and Under 5’s stay and play.
Who benefits from our workThe Markfield Project is an inclusive community hub which benefits the local community and residents of Haringey.
