A world of possibilities for all abilities

Short breaks activity days

For children and young people awaiting diagnostic assessment for Autism.

Working in groups of up to 10 young people, your child will have the opportunity to take part in up to four fun and challenging activities each day.
Activities will vary depending on which centre and date you book – please click on the centre of your choice below to view the date and activities available.

Our professional instructors will oversee groups throughout the day to give parents peace of mind and ensure your child has a memorable day.

All technical equipment is provided – participants just need to bring comfortable (and waterproof) clothing and footwear, as well as a packed lunch and a drink. If taking part in water-based activities, please also bring a full change of clothes, footwear and a towel.

Please note morning drop-off and registration is between 9.00 to 9.30am; afternoon pickup is from 4.30 to 5.00pm

These fantastic inclusive days are fully funded
by the Short Breaks innovation scheme
