[Cumbria] Inclusive play sessions for autistic, ADHD and SEN children

🚂 Do you know an autistic, ADHD or SEND child who loves trains?

All Aboard Club runs inclusive train play sessions for autistic and ADHD children. The children can build and play with our huge train sets in a safe, understanding and supportive environment.

At our play sessions, the children are in charge. They can run the trains, build the track, and sort out any problems. It builds their confidence, reduces their anxiety, and allows them to play for hours, while developing their social and communication skills.

We’re bringing our trains to the Stainmore Heritage Railway at Kirkby Stephen East in Cumbria. Our train sets will be running along the historic station platform – but it’s got a roof if the weather’s not great!

Our sessions are suitable for children and siblings aged 4 and upwards. A parent or adult carer needs to stay for the whole session.

All Aboard Club staff and volunteers have lived experience of autism and ADHD, so we understand the children’s challenges. We do everything possible to make the sessions as accessible and inclusive as possible for each and every child.

If you’d like a chat about our play sessions and your child’s specific needs, please call Stainmore Heritage Railway 017683 71700. This is the station phone – only manned at weekends, but there is an answerphone for folk to leave messages and it is checked every weekend or email cumbria@allaboardclub.com

Parking: Lots of free parking is available on site.
