Things to do

There is a lot to do for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities. This includes play schemes, after school activities, sports clubs and youth groups.

All activities take place in fun, safe, friendly environments and are led by fully trained staff. Some groups are also open to siblings and/or parents.

Lots more information can be found on our short break activities web page.
