Where can you find information on activities?


You can see from the list above that children and young people have accessed a wide range of activities as "Short Breaks" using Aiming High Funding.  Achieving for Children are working to the improve amount and quality information about Short Break activities on the Local Offer.  Currently the Local Offer only includes specialist activities for children and young people with SEND. 

Later in 2017, AfC plan to link into an expanded directory which will contain information on mainstream activities (activities that all children and young people can take part in) for children and young people. We hope that this will make it easier to find information all in one place.

Until then, you can search for specialist leisure and social activities within the "Services Directory" on this website. Using the link below you can view providers who offer activities or details of individual activity clubs.
