Stand Up SEND Family Support Group


Stand Up is for SEND Children, their siblings and parents/carers. We provide activities and support after school and during the holidays and offer a chance to meet and play in a safe, non–judgemental environment.

You do not need a diagnosis to attend any of our sessions, as we appreciate that a diagnosis can take time; if you feel that your child (or even you!) would benefit from our sessions then please do come along.

Every Friday we have SEND Kids Club 3:30pm – 5:30pm which is £3 per family. We have our own bouncy castle with slide, ride ons, dark den, arts and crafts, outdoor play space and refreshments for everyone. This is held at the Stamshaw & Tipner Community Centre.

On the first Monday of every month we hold an exclusive SEND Soft Play Session at Wacky Warehouse at the Farmhouse on Burrfields Road, which is £5 per child (siblings are always welcome) and for this they receive 2hrs of soft play, a hot meal and a drink.

In the holidays we also run sessions at the Portsmouth School of Gymnastics and hope to have weekly sessions from January when they move into their new building.

We also hold seasonal parties, such as Halloween and Christmas were the SEND Children and their families can partake in as little or as much as they like and trips to local places and events such as the Pantomime as we know it can be daunting going it alone.

Lastly, we hold various parent / carer sessions throughout the year such as Paint & Chill, or a night out.

Please see our website for full events listings and to book your place.
