Service description:
We support children, young people and their families through our activities which are designed to improve the emotional, social and living skills of those we support.

Our UK youth weekends use the challenge of activities such as indoor skydiving, canoeing and surfing to build confidence and prove that anything is possible. Our international trips provide the opportunity to experience the wonder of travel in a semi-independent way.

Our family weekends are designed with parents in mind. We provide workshops and informal opportunities for parents to share the highs and lows of family life. For the children, the weekend is a chance to come together and share in a range of organised activities.

We also offer grants whether it is for a Brialler or a computer to help them to keep in touch. We want to encourage the children and young people to develop independent life skills and therefore also provide grants for equipment such as talking household items, magnifiers or navigation aids.

With the right support, we believe all children and young people can develop the confidence to take their place in the world.
