Situation

The children attending our services can be extremely challenging to look after 24/7. From eating to bathing, to even the basics such as getting dressed everything is an immense challenge with special children. The parents/carers and siblings need a break to enable the carers to focus more on their other children and enable them to be the best carers possible. In addition these children have less opportunity available to access regular fun activities.

Solution

We will be taking the children away from Thursday morning to Sunday evening and provide them with an unforgettable fun experience. Every child will benefit from a 1:1 carer and activities will be all inclusive to ensure that the children enjoy every minute of their stay. In addition we will be providing sorely needed respite to the families that look after these children 24/7.
