Take part in the Short Breaks programme to meet friends, relax, learn new skills and have fun
The Short Breaks service delivers fun, positive experiences for children and young people with disabilities who live in the Royal Borough of Greenwich, enabling them to spend time away from their main carers, whilst also giving parents and carers a rest from caring duties.
Join activities like ice-skating, laser-tag, theatre trips, jump giants, bowling and film nights. This programme runs on Monday evenings and Saturday mornings.
Join in with a range of exciting and fun activities throughout the half-term and Easter holidays.
Overnight breaks take place over weekends at venues across the South East of England. They are designed to increase independence, help young people make new friends, and most importantly for having fun!
Spend Saturdays enjoying various activities including bowling, trips to adventure playgrounds and sightseeing in London.
