Additional Needs Short Breaks

Supported by Kent County Council, our holiday club for young people provides a natural break for children with additional needs and their families

The club is for 8-17 year olds living in Kent. Activities are fun, engaging and tailored to individual and group needs. Sessions can include hands-on cooking, environmental arts, recycled art, den building, pond dipping, forest activities and gardening. All activities are led by our team of tutors with vast experience teaching children with a variety of additional needs. The sessions are designed to help develop skills, confidence and self-esteem in a safe, fun environment.

The club is for young people - parents/carers are not required to stay.

If you haven’t attended before, you will need to come to an open afternoon before booking onto the holiday club. Please complete the expression of interest form for new families before attending any taster session. 

Our next open afternoon is: Friday 18th February 2022
