The Be You Crew host monthly activities at the Foxlowe Arts Centre in Leek. We also arrange several trips each year to the theatre and other places of interest. We cater for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and their families who reside within or on the outskirts of the Staffordshire Moorlands. We run through Facebook however we communicate via phone, text or e mail to none Facebook members.
Through Facebook we share relevant information on activities and SEN related issues and offer the opportunity to share problems and solutions and networking for all. We have a website too.
The group was established by 3 mothers with children with SEN as there were very few social opportunities locally. We also aim for siblings to come along to events to meet other siblings for friendship and support.
Activities include visiting theatre groups, children’s entertainers, Chuckles, discos, glo and games parties and musical groups. We have arranged exclusive hire of Flip Out and a play barn and have ran a coach trip to Disney on ice and the Regent Theatre. A tuck shop is available and tea/coffee and cake for parents. The Foxlowe is accessible but does not yet have changing places facilities however there is a private space for changing if required. Admission is £5 per family group not per individual.
