The SPLASH Project first operated for 6 weeks in the summer of 1994. Prior to SPLASH there was little provision for children with special needs in the Teignbridge area. 

The Scheme is run by a management committee made up of parents and volunteers.

44 children are currently registered to SPLASH. During any given session up to 12 of these young people will attend. Most of the children are supported by staff on either a 1-1 or 2-1 basis. The children are organised into 3 groups to assist with planning for them.

The current day to day supervising structure comprises a Coordinator; One Playscheme Manager and two Deputy Playscheme Managers. We employ play workers when in session and also use volunteers.

SPLASH is a registered charity (No. 1043693) and is OFSTED registered (No. EY500950). We work within the Play Work Principles and aim to support the development of children through play.

All children need a place to play. They need space, informality and freedom to run around and make a noise, to express themselves, to experiment and investigate. Children and young people with additional needs and disabilities need this freedom even more than others, in surroundings that stimulate their imagination and challenge them to face and overcome risk, they will be helped to build their self confidence and independence in a safe, secure environment.
