Senior Respite Club (Age 9 to 18 years)

Senior Respite Club

Respite Club is a short breaks service designed for young people with more complex or severe learning disabilities who require a higher level of support.
The Club runs fortnightly on Saturdays (term time only) and on selected dates in the school holidays and provides opportunities for young people aged from 9 to 18 years to spend time with their peers; allowing their family to take a break from their usual caring responsibilities.

The young people participate in meaningful activities with the assistance of a one-to-one support worker, to promote independence and social skills.
There are a variety of activities to take part in onsite, as well as trips into the community for swimming, bowling, adventure playground etc.

Families that have had an induction and registered for our respite services can book online.
