Working for LfA

We regret to announce that we have taken the difficult decision to suspend all playschemes with immediate effect and to defer the application process for our summer schemes pending clarification of the government’s plans for schools and activity venues.  Normal operations will resume at the earliest opportunity, thank you for your continued support.

Our staff are our most important resource and we are always looking for people with experience of working with ASC children or an interest in working with such children.

I am pleased to advise that we are planning to run three schemes again this year, with the provisional details being as follows: –


Scheme                         Venue                                                   Dates

Manchester                    Grange School, Longsight                         21 July – 31 July (9 days)

Stockport                       Inscape House, Cheadle                            27 July – 7 August (10 days)

Trafford                         Pictor School, Timperley                          23 July – 5 August (10 days)


We are now accepting applications for this year’s schemes as follows: –

If you have worked on one of our schemes within the last two years, please download the 2020 Staff Abbreviated Application form.

If you haven’t worked on any of our schemes in the last two years please download the 2020 Full Staff Application form.


Please return your signed application form to John Corker at 69 Fairlands Road, Sale M33 4AU by 30 April at the latest. We need to have a good idea of staff numbers before we can start offering child places and some parents book time off work according to which days they have been allocated, so please reply sooner than that if possible.

The net pay for regular staff will be £45 net per day, equating to £54 gross, with wages being paid directly into people’s bank accounts 3 working days after the last day of the respective schemes.

Please be aware that before you can work for us you must sign to say that you have read and understood our policies. You will find all these on a separate page of our website by clicking here.
