North Warwickshire Short Breaks Service

Midland Mencap have some really exciting news to share. We are launching a brand new short breaks service for children with additional needs in North Warwickshire on the 1st of April.

Who is this short service for?

So this service is for anyone aged 0 and 18 with additional needs this could include learning disability, a physical disability, a mental health condition or difficulties, or somebody who’s on the autistic spectrum.

What types of short breaks could be available?

So the ranges of activities that we could offer are really fun day trips, evenings social clubs, sports groups and wellbeing activities. It will be available on weekends, so trips out whether it’s Harry Potter, Lego land, Warwick castle you name it, it could be absolutely anything. As well as weekdays and weekend short breaks we’re also going to be offering overnight stays to support the child but also to support parent carers. And we also run sessions catered for those young people who have more specialised needs so we run 1 to 1 support to provide those opportunities within the community for the child.
