Please note that because of the funding received through the Local Authority, all activities for children and young people under the age of 18 are restricted to people living within Southampton City’s boundary in possession of a Max Card Plus, or those families open to Jigsaw. Furthermore, all of our activities will give priority to children and young people living at the family home in order to provide respite for unpaid carers, though we will be happy to accept members living in supported living if places are available.

A free taster session and full application is mandatory before accessing our activities. The application process has a quick turnaround of just 2 working days, but taster sessions can only be booked using existing dates in either our Playschemes or Saturday Clubs. Therefore please allow at least one month from point of contact to point of entry into our services so we have time to book a convenient taster session. A carer is required to attend the taster session with the child or young person.
