Children (age 4-12)

Helping children from as young as four years old, all our projects for children are designed to help them learn and develop whilst having fun together.

Children grow and develop so fast that listening to them as individuals and paying close attention to their daily behaviour and reactions, is even more important than with adults. Our professional personal assistants and project leaders are trained and committed to give all members that level of attention.

Please scroll through the opportunities shown here or, if you would like to talk them through with someone at Social Life Opportunities, call us on 0121 779 3865.
