QPR In The Community Trust - Inspiring Change

Content

The SUPA Hoops sessions started up when a parent's group called SUPA (Supporting and Understanding Parents with Additional needs) got in touch with Queens Park Rangers in the Community Trust in 2012 regarding setting up sessions for their children.  This led to a pilot project, then established project with the assistance of grants from the Baily Thomas Charitable Fund and Field of Dreams.
 
The atmosphere at the sessions is fun and based on a mixture of physical games and skills, as well as group work.  The parents can relax and the children can operate and interact within their own capacities.
 
The group works with families of children living in Brent around concerns of the following:-
•         Autism/ ASD spectrum disorders
•         Communication needs
•         Developmental delays
•         Hyper-mobility syndrome/ EDS
 
We have linked the project to the following schools:-
•         Malorees School
•         Queensmill School 
•         Manor School
 
All these schools are now promoting the sessions and referring children onto our programme. We are also linked in with following organisations and we can refer parents to these organisations for support and advice.  We can also take referrals from these groups:
Brent early years inclusion team
BOAT (Brent outreach autism team)
Kilburn Children’s centres
CAMHS  (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services)
Occupational Therapists
