Rutland Rotaract Family Support Centre (RRFSC)

Rutland Rotaract Family Support Centre (RRFSC) aims to provide social, recreational, educational and therapeutic support to children and young people (0-25) with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND), and their families.

Based in Oakham, we organise regular activities during term-time: this currently includes swimming and riding lessons, Film Club, a singing group and Family Support drop-in sessions. In addition, we arrange six week blocks of activities, such as cookery and music, on a rolling programme.

We also organise a range of holiday activities and social events, days out and summer picnics.

The Family Centre is managed by the Trustees and executive committee, all of whom are volunteers. Therefore all our funds go directly towards providing activities and support for families who could not access this elsewhere. We are the only local provider of this type of support for Rutland families.

This is what the Family Centre means to some of our users:-

These activities are important to me because they have given me a chance to socialise with other young people, improve my confidence and self-esteem, and give me some time away from the family!” Young person aged 18

Swimming was extremely stressful for him as he walked through the water trying desperately to keep his head and hair dry. The transition over the past year from wading to swimming over a length has been inspirational.”   Parent of a 10 year old.

If your child has special needs and you would like to join in any of our activities please contact us at rrfsc@hotmail.co.uk.
