Short break groups and activities

There are lots of groups and activities open to any child or young person who has a special educational need and/or disability. Families can access these groups and activities themselves and will need to pay a contribution to attend most groups.

Some groups are run by specially trained staff which means that parent carers do not have to stay with their children. You or a carer might have to stay with your child at other groups, depending on the group or the needs of your child.
