Specialist Inclusion Project

What does it do?
Offers clubs, groups and holidays sessions for children with additional needs. There are also social activities for the whole family. We also run Duke of Edinburgh Award for young people with disabilities. The team can support young people with personal care/medication/mobility and many other identified needs.

The Specialist Inclusion Project support young people aged between 8 to 18 years of age with a registered disability to access a Short Break (Leisure and Recreation) Club or Group based on their needs, likes and hobbies. Young people must meet criteria to access our service. This includes;

  • Not currently accessing any club/group of up to 3 hours per week (unless wanting to change this

The Specialist Inclusion Project support young people aged 8 to 18 years. For those children under 8, please look for local Stay and Plays and some community based support. Here are some examples;

The Specialist Inclusion Project also run a residential Summer Camp or eligible young people. This is a supported residential based at Ingleborough Hall running over the Summer holidays. Young people will get a choice of a week of care running Monday to Friday. This enables parents to have almost a week long break from their caring role whilst young people are supported 24 hours a day by SIP staff whilst enjoying a full activity programme.

The Specialist Inclusion Project regularly gain feedback from young people accessing Short Breaks to ensure the services on offer are up to date and wanted by those who access it.
