More About The Organisation

Organisation Description

About the Organisation

Bournstream is a unique outdoor adventure playsite on the Cotswold edge, roughly between Gloucester and Bristol - half a mile out of Wotton-Under-Edge, set in a hidden valley bordered by fields and woodland.

This is a playground for special needs children, their families, respite groups and their special schools. This area is fenced, and is for key holders only so that adults and children can feel comfortable in the playground.

Bournstream playsite is not open to the general public. Its dedicated use is for children and young people with disabilities or special needs - for their families, carers, respite groups and special schools.

Bournstream is not staffed and is run entirely by volunteers. It is managed by a hands-on Committee (which includes parents of children with disabilities and respite carers), volunteers giving their time, energy and ideas - and with the active support of many local Community Groups.

New families/carers/groups/schools MUST book in to a joining/introduction session.
