More about our annual playscheme:

Kickstart the Event brings together over 300 children each year for games, songs, teaching, crafts and lots of fun! We run the event in The Littlehampton Academy and every year there are fantastic stories of what the children have been up to and the impact it has on their lives. The event would not be possible without the amazing support of hundreds of volunteers who give up their time to make it happen. If you would like to volunteer, please fill out our online application here.
