Taking part in mainstream school and holiday activities

What do we do?

We support disabled children/young people (age 0-18) to access out of school/holiday activities or child care within mainstream settings. Once we receive the referral, we will: 

  • visit the family to talk more about the young person's needs and interests;
  • offer a short term solution to find a suitable provision;
  • support the young person to settle in and assess what additional advice, support, training and/or equipment may be needed for the child to continue to attend safely;
  • work with the provider to put in to place any necessary support.

There is an expectation that parents/carers meet the cost of the activities.

 

Who can make a referral?

We take referrals from parents/carers and anyone who works with disabled children and young people.

 

What do we need to know?

The criteria to refer to us is that the child/young person:

  • has a diagnosed disability or condition 
  • does not currently have a social worker/lead professional
  • only need is to access activities/childcare
  • is between 0-18 years old
