Holiday activities

During the holidays, we have a special programme of activities for you to join in.

Watch out for information about activities coming up. The next ones can be booked now – have a look at the calendar.


What: One-to-one friendships and buddies

Where: All over Cheshire East
Age-group: 5 to 21 years old
What happens?: Friends for Leisure will aim to find a volunteer friend with similar interests to yours to go along to an activity with.

If you are younger than 12, you can decide with your parents what organised activity you would like to do. This could be Brownies, sports or something else. Then Friends for Leisure will aim to find a volunteer to be a buddy for you to go to the activity with.

If you are 11 or over, Friends for Leisure will aim to find a volunteer for you to have a one-to-one friendship with. Then together, you can meet up and do what friends usually do together – go to the cinema, meet for a coffee, go for a walk or a more organised activity.

It can sometimes to tricky to find the right person for you, so we would ask you to be patient with us while we do our best.

Cost: There is no charge for having a friend or buddy. You will need the money for you to take part.
