The Aiming High for Disabled Children Short Breaks Team delivers and commissions a wide range of evening and weekend group based activities and holiday programmes for disabled children aged 0-19 years. These activities are designed for disabled children who cannot attend universal activities because of their additional support needs.
The sessions are led by highly experienced members of the Short Breaks Team and they have a fantastic team of fully trained and enthusiastic support workers.
The team currently caters for over 250 disabled children and young people on a weekly basis with additional children and young people accessing the school holiday programmes.
The team work with partner organisations to ensure that young people are able to access the services that are most beneficial to their needs.

- Be a resident of Sefton
