Special Needs Children

Does a child in your care have special needs?
Join in our exclusive fun evenings to meet new people and make new friends

£6.00 per child, adults free

We accept Short Breaks Vouchers in Milton Keynes only.

Our special needs evenings were introduced in 2009 after customer comments on how best some of our users might access our activities. Started as a pilot scheme in Milton Keynes for local families with children and adults with special needs, this not for profit event quickly became a regular fixture in the local calendar. Brothers, sisters and friends are all welcome to join in the fun after hours with the freedom and comfort of knowing that the time is suited to them.

Full use of all the facilities will keep even the most energetic children occupied for the evening. Anyone attending the evening who is not already a 360 member will receive free registration for their family.

We would welcome any input from individuals or groups to help us to continue to develop this event and tailor it to the needs of our customers.

For more details contact your nearest Centre:

A safe, inclusive and secure environment with friendly, experienced staff.

We look forward to welcoming you!
