Disabled Children's Team - Day Care Development Team

We organise and run short break activities, for example:

  • holiday play schemes
  • out of school activities
  • day trips to locations chosen by children and young people
  • Buddy/Volunteer Co-ordinator
  • recruit, train & support volunteers and buddies who support young people to access social and leisure activities in the community

Please see the Buddy Handbook for further information or if you would like a buddy fill in the request form

Holiday Activities 2019

We aim to develop, support and provide opportunities for children and young people with additional needs to fully access their choice of leisure, play and social activities in a structured, supportive and inclusive environment.

Based on the feedback from last summer’s holiday events, we propose to once again run a similar programme of activities.
