Description

We organise activities and days out for children who have individual needs, or disabilities, and their families, offering a variety of fun and inclusive opportunities, enabling the participation in events that may otherwise be inaccessible. Transport is provided (including wheelchair accessible), and activities are offered at a subsidised rate to ensure affordability for all.

We organise weekly day trips during the school holidays (with transport included – wheelchair accessible as required).

The Hub Club, sponsored by Children In Need, is a free monthly group held on Saturdays from 3.30pm to 5.30pm, and provides fun activities for all the family to join in.

Annual short breaks for the whole family are a favourite. These range from a couple of nights away, up to a week!

We recognise that parents and carers need a break, so days and nights out, overnight stays and theatre trips are organised specifically for them.

Weekly swimming opportunities with private hire of a local pool are also on the calendar.

Updates are distributed through regular newsletters, and a “What’s On” guide packed with information.

The charity is committee-led, members are fellow parents of young people who have a disability. All are fully DBS checked.

We are supported by the Short Breaks Team and Children in Need.
