The Goldhill Play Association
The Goldhill Adventure Playground (GAP) has been providing play, learning and social opportunities to children and young people (5 to 25 years old) in Leicester for over 40 years. Over 2,000 children and young people are registered with GAP, including many with behavioural, learning, and other disabilities who live in and around the large housing estate of Saffron Lane, which is in the most deprived 5% of areas nationally. Responding to a request from local schools and supported by the local council, GAP want to develop their alternative education provision service for children unable to cope with mainstream educational settings. GAP are using the Fore grant to hire a qualified part-time special education needs teacher to develop, deliver, and monitor its custom curriculum to support the educational advancement of students with the aim of returning them to mainstream classrooms.
