Active NAtion

Commissioned by Southampton City Council, our short breaks provide children and young people with disabilities, or additional needs, an opportunity to spend time away from their parents, engage in fun activities and enjoy time with their friends.

They offer parents/carers a break from their caring responsibilities and time to spend with other family members and to catch-up on other daily tasks.

WHO IS IT FOR

The  programme is open to all children and young people who:

  • Have a disability or additional needs and may require support to participate fully in leisure or recreation activities;
  • Are between 4 years and their 19th birthday.
  • Live in Southampton / surrounding areas.

HOW MUCH IS IT

£3

Our short break activities begin at just £3 per child. Siblings, parents and friends are welcome to join in with most sessions too, however preference will always be given to children with SEND.

WHAT NEXT

1. Choose an activity from the timetable below that your child (or children) would like to try.

2. If you have any questions or would like more information, please get in touch with a member of the team.

3. Add the session to your calendar and just turn up - yes it's really that easy and there is no booking required.

Our friendly community coaches will be waiting and ready to greet you on arrival.
