Short Breaks Inclusion Workers

Short Breaks Inclusion Workers
a big part of Aiming High for Disabled Children is about transforming short breaks.  Part of this is about increasing access to universal leisure activities for disabled children and young people.


The Short break Inclusion Workers want to:
Make sure that children and young people with severe disabilities can access a range of universal (non-specialist) activities of their choice.
Make sure that children and young people with severe disabilities are accessing universal leisure activities for more time.
Make sure that we increase the number of children and young people who have severe disabilities accessing universal leisure activities.


To do this we want to:
Work with the providers of leisure activities and clubs to make sure that they are aware of any difficulties that children and young people may have in joining in.
Gather information together of all the universal activities and opportunities that are available in your area.
Share the information (on a website) about what is available in your area with parents, young people, children, schools, children’s services and others.


Please contact us if you think we may be able to help you make a difference to a child or young person with disabilities.
