WELCOME TO OUR SHORT BREAKS SERVICE, COVERING SATURDAY PLAYSCHEME AND YOUTH GROUP OPTIONS
Giving families and children a short break is important to us as an organisation. It is vital that children and young people with learning disabilities have quality time away from their families to engage in stimulating and exciting activities.
We work with children that have a learning disability and provide a safe and fun environment in our all access building in Andover. Our dedicated team of Play Workers and Leader work hard to deliver a range of opportunities for children and young people who access our service and in line with their needs and wishes. We organise in house activities, access to our local community or go further afield using our minibus.
YOU CAN RELY ON US TO PROVIDE SAFE, FUN AND ENGAGING ACTIVITIES
When you leave your child with us you can be confident that they will be supported by DBS checked, trained and safe to practice staff. Our Play Worker training includes health and safety, medication administration, epilepsy awareness, safeguarding, first aid, manual handling, positive behaviour support and PEG. We provide support for children and young people that have a HCC Gateway Card and may require a higher level of support including those with complex medical conditions, meaning no child has to miss out on the fun.
