PAG (Parent Action Group)

PAG (Parent Action Group) for special play is a Community Action Group set up by local parents, within the Borough of Rushmoor and surrounding Boroughs (in the UK), who all have at least one child with a disability.

Formed when a group of parents got together when the Rushmoor special needs playscheme was under threat of closure, they found that there is very little provision for play and leisure for special needs children. Their aim is to increase the play and leisure opportunities for families with special needs children and young people within their local area. To this end:

  • They aim to raise awareness of the need for play and leisure provision to local authority and other local providers.
  • They hold regular events and clubs open to all special needs children and siblings.
  • They run a very successful MADD (Music, Art, Dance and Drama) club as well as an annual performance of the special needs pantomime at the Princes Hall annually.
  • They hold regular family events.
