With facilities including sensory gardens, a nature trail, a wheelchair-accessible tree house, as well as an outdoor basketball court and playground, our tailored packages offer breaks for children and young people, and much needed rest time for their families.
The children we support may:
- have complex disabilities and health care needs which require support from a carer or a nurse
- be vulnerable to acute health changes, necessitating in them needing 24-hour care
Due to the vulnerability of children at The Children's Trust we are unable to accommodate children with severe challenging behaviour, however, we may be able to suggest alternative placements.
During their stay, children enjoy a variety of fun leisure activities, facilities and outings, and also have access to on-site daily school sessions during term-time. In addition, we also offer a range of activities including arts and crafts, themed weeks, and group and individual activities. Families are also welcome to access our Saturday/holiday clubs which run throughout the year.
Packages are available for children and young people from a wide geographical area, and our dedicated Placements Team work closely with a number of parties including clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), local authority social care teams and private funders to discuss suitability and availability of a short breaks placement.
