Would you like to make a big difference to children and young people with a disability? Then join Achieving for Children and help to provide young people with short breaks in the community!
What is a short break?
Short breaks provide opportunities for children and young people with disabilities to access mainstream and specialist activities, such as after school clubs, a few hours at a leisure or sports activity group, holiday groups or an overnight stay.
Short breaks give children and young people the chance to develop new friendships, take part in new experiences, learn new skills and have fun whilst achieving positive outcomes.
The purpose of shorts breaks is to give children and young people with disabilities the same opportunity as others to take part in various activities. Also for parents and carers to have a short break from caring.
You can out more about short breaks on AfCinfo – our website for children and families.
