Activity groups for children who have additional needs

Children and young people with additional needs want to go to the same groups and activities as their family and friends wherever possible.

You can search the Local Offer to find details of inclusive childcare, activities and youth clubs. You can also find information about sports clubs and activities for disabled children.

Families and staff working with children and young people need to feel confident that they can meet their needs. Our inclusion team offers support and advice to groups who would like to become more inclusive.

We also work with several organisations to provide group activities for disabled children and young people (opens in a new window) who cannot go to local groups because of their support needs.

For disabled children and young people who need a higher level of support we can provide short-break services as part of an agreed plan following an assessment of a child or young person's needs.
