Hi, I'm in Edinburgh, I don't really know much about groups and stuff, the only thing I know about and go to sometimes is "The Yard" which is "a purpose built indoor and outdoor play facility and adventure playground for children and young people with additional support needs". It's pretty basic, but good, it also has a sensory room, some soft play, books, big outdoor playground and a little kitchen room for the parents for making tea/coffee. This is their website - http://www.theyardscotland.org.uk/ which tells you when each session is on.

Me and my son haven't been for a while, he's not into socialising much lol but usually try go in the summer.
Although I've just noticed your pic of your little girl and she's probably too young for an adventure playground! Blush lol

Yeah it's at cannomills, you don't have to pay to get in, they accept donations, even a couple of pound, but you don't have to and no one ask you for money! There's a box next to the sign in book. If you do plan on going, deffinitely give them a call/check online because some sessions are booked just for specials schools or other things.
