WACKY is an activity programme and we welcome all young people with a disability however we do not have staff to provide one to one or two to one support. We would encourage you to come along with your personal assistant/carer if required; this has been the case over many years and has worked really well. .
The cost of WACKY is £10.00 per person per day. Payment by card, cheque or cash is acceptable. Cheques should be payable to Kirklees Council. It is not possible to give refunds though for non-attendance.
Please ring the office on 01484 225952 and ask for admin to pay by card. A packed lunch & drink will be required each day and a small amount of spending money for tuck shop. To book your place please complete and return the attached Registration Form and send it to the office at the address above. We only have the capacity to accommodate around fifty young people per day so to avoid disappointment a prompt reply is advised. It is recommended that you keep a note of all the dates you have booked to avoid any confusion. Please don’t hesitate to give me a call on the above number if you require any further information. I believe we have the perfect ingredients for a fantastic project. All we need now is you, so don’t delay book today either by e-mail or post.
