Struggling to find exciting ways to entertain the kids at the weekend? If the answer is yes, Caudwell Children has the perfect solution for you!

Caudwell Children run Short Breaks activity sessions during weekends for children and young people aged 8-18 who have a registered disability. Children or young people who are on the autism pathway will also be eligible to attend.

These sessions are a fantastic way for your child to have fun, make new friends and build confidence in a safe and welcoming environment.

Your child will have freedom to try different activities and find new interests while providing you with vital respite so you can go shopping, catch up with friends or take some well-deserved “you” time.

To secure your child’s first Short Breaks place, please complete our sign-up form by clicking on the button below, alternatively if your child has attended previous Short Break sessions, please email the Short Breaks team on to book your session.
