Activities

Rutland Rotaract Family Support Centre in Oakham, England organises regular activities including swimming lessons, horse riding, film club, and

holiday activities.


From time to time, we provide additional activities such as cookery or music sessions.


We believe that no family should be financially disadvantaged by the fact that their child has additional needs. Therefore, our costs are heavily subsidised to ensure we do not charge you more than an equivalent mainstream session would cost.


Swimming

Introduction to Swimming

Children under 5 with parents

Sessions are held on Saturdays during term-time in the warm, shallow pool at Oakham CofE Primary School.


The aim is for young children to gain confidence in the water with the support of their parents. A qualified swimming teacher and lifeguard are present for the session.

Special Needs Swimming Lessons 

We provide swimming lessons for children and young people with additional needs on a Saturday afternoon during term-time at Oakham CofE and Catmose Sports Swimming Pools.


Using both pools ensures all ages and abilities are catered for but please contact us to discuss your child's support needs. Swimmers can work towards distance badges or individual targets.


Sessions cost £5.50, payable termly in advance.

Complex Needs Swimming Sessions

In partnership with Inspire2Tri, we are able to offer sessions in a hydrotherapy pool for those children and young people with the most complex physical needs.
