Our aim is to provide an exciting accessible winter wonderland suitable for children, young people and adults with disabilities.
This event will include various sensory activities to provide these individuals with a unique and stimulating experience to accommodate a range of needs.
The event will take place in December during the course of 1 day.
Sandwell Asian Family Support Service (SAFS)
We aim to reduce social isolation of individuals with disabilities and our local community. To create a harmonious environment whereby there is a better understanding of each others needs.
Promoting our SAFS' families to integrate and participate in our Winter Wonderland in collaboration with our local community.
Thus this creates an opportunity for the community to gain more insight into the needs and lifestyles of our families with disabled individuals.
We hope this will also boost stamina and confidence of SAFS' families and disabled individuals to understand the troubles faced by the local community too.
Reduce Social Isolation

Activities» Ensuring all pathways, surroundings & rides are adapted & suitable to all. We also aim to ensure all equipment and environments are safely regulated.
Our Health & Safety officer will be available onsite throughout to monitor the environments. Also our Compliance Officer will conduct environmental risk assessments.
Our project will hopefully create a better understanding of disabilities as well as stimulate more involvement of our local community in social activities. This will be demonstrated through further events that follow on from this project.
The only risks that may influence the success of the project would be unforeseen weather conditions. As we intend to hold our event in our courtyard in the centre of the building. However, we may overcome this by potentially investing in a shelter and heaters if the weather conditions are poor. Alternatively, we may also carry out our event in doors.
We will be regularly in touch with our donors via phone or email to update them with any progress along the way.

Our project will be at our newly acquired Windmill Community Centre based in CapeHill area of Smethwick.
This area has a relatively poor economic climate. Furthermore the demographics of this area consists of predominantly growing community of new & emerging minority ethnic groups. Thus is a greatly multicultural area.
All members of the community including the minority ethnic groups will benefit as it provides them with the opportunity to interact with other members of the community as well as allowing them to gain an understanding about SAFS and what we do and how may assist/work alongside them to provide them with support.
Our charities' has expanded our mandate to cater and support the new and emerging communities.
Thus this project will help us to enter this market sector and inform the newer communities about the opportunities we offer and how we may support and guide them in anyway.
Also this project enables us to gain put our new expanded mandate into practice.
