Due to the recent pandemic, we’ve had to make some changes to the Reach Out workshops. Participant numbers will be limited to 6 per session and will be sold first come first served. Participants have the option to stay all day, bringing a packed lunch. Making Space staff will be available to supervise lunches and, if open, may take the group to The Hub Community Cafe. We have created an Updated & Summarised Risk Assessment and will have Covid -secure procedures in place. This information will be sent out to all those booking on in addition to a updated social story which will document the visual and practical changes around the building to ease anxiety of those attending for the first time in months.

*Please note that the morning part of this workshop will take place outdoors whatever the weather, so appropriate clothing and outerwear is essential.

Parents are welcome to stay if they child prefers it, tea and coffee facilities are normally available for free in the corridor however due to Covid-19 any remaining safe parents are advised to bring their own drinks from home. The parents are not intended to come in and do the workshop as well.

Other notes


Please note, as Making Space is a charity we require a minimum number of participants to make a course viable to run. In the run up to the workshop, Making Space will be in touch if numbers are too low to go ahead.

As spaces are limited, we do require advance bookings. Once payment has been made, you are guaranteed a place.

To book your place today, book online. All customers who wish to book and pay online should read our Booking Guidelines before proceeding (see below)

If not booking online we accept cheques (made payable to Making Space), cash (if booking in person) or card payments over the phone. Please email us at / phone 02392 472491.

We do have a small amount of hardship money available per session to assist those families who are in receipt of income support or are a low income family. Evidence will need to be shown to receive some money of the course fee. Please call and speak to a member of the team for more details.
