Ealing SEND Fair Logo

Have a look at the range of workshops and activities we have on offer for you.

They have all been created to help you as you prepare for adulthood. We really hope that you will leave at the end of the day knowing more then you did when you arrived!

Throughout the day there will be a Café run by Our Barn and Project Search. They will be serving drinks and unfilled refreshments (you might well wonder).

This list is probably going to change a bit before the day itself so make sure you check back here to see what's happening. If you are interested in being involved then please get in touch with Tom Quilter on 0208 280 2259 or at tom.quilter@ealingmencap.org.uk.
