Service description:
Oundle School Mencap Holidays (OSMH) is a registered charity that runs annual residential holidays for children and young adults with learning disabilities.

OSMH Summer Holiday
A week-long residential holiday for children and young people aged 8 -18 years old. The holiday is held at Oundle School, who generously give Mencap the use of two of their boarding houses for the whole week. On-site activities include everything from swimming to finger painting, and from trampolining to dressing up. There are also day-trips to places such as the seaside, adventure parks, and zoos.

OSMH Outdoors
This camping holiday is a long weekend for young adults aged 18-30. Participants sleep under canvas, cook their own food, and enjoy a range of adventures off-site.

The children and young people who attend the holidays have a range of learning disabilities and may also have physical disabilities or medical conditions. OSMH offer places to children whose challenging behaviour or specialist medical needs mean they may be excluded from other holidays. They also accommodate those who cannot afford commercial respite care schemes.

For more information about applying for a place, please visit the website.

Please Note: OSMH are staffed by volunteers and are reliant on charitable funding for their continued existence.
