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.
We will be running two open afternoons for new young people please fill out the form below if you are interested in signing someone up for the club:
