The Parasol Project supports disabled and non-disabled children aged 5-12 yrs in accessing a variety of inclusive play schemes throughout Oxford city during the school holidays. We offer an action-packed programme of activities centred on free-play for children with a range of care needs.

One of the magical and unique things about The Parasol Project is its emphasis on inclusiveness. We champion equality and have created a unique ethos and culture that is present in all of our work.
