We provide a range of activities to support children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities to access safe environments to play, learn, make friends, and be active. 

We know how important a healthy lifestyle is, and how much more vulnerable our children and young people are to isolation, poorer health, and being less engaged in their local communities. We hope that our menu of opportunities include some activities your child or young person would benefit from. Below you will find we have broken down our offer into term time and holiday activities.

 

If your child is aged 0-17, you must be a member of Shropshire Councils 'All In Short Breaks' program to access the activities. If your young person is aged 18-25, we ask that you are an Actio member. Being a member of either All In Short Breaks or Actio simply means that we can keep you up to date with new offers and information about the opportunities we provide and ensure that any changes to the program take into consideration the range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities across Shropshire.

Please note that all activities are provided as a 'targeted provision offer', this means that if your child requires personal care support, dedicated one to one, or has complex care or health needs, you will need to speak to Shropshire Councils Disabled Childrens Team about accessing additional support to be able to access these activities safely and appropriately. Many providers are happy for PA's, parent carers, or other trusted adults to support a child to access an activity but please verify this with them first as they may need to undertake some risk assessments for your child's safety and wellbeing. Please contact First Point Of Contact at Shropshire Council on 0345 678 9021 to discuss how to access any additional support.

TESTIMONIALS

"I love taking him to the centre and being able to watch his riding skills progress along with his social skills and trust"

PARENT CARER

"The STitC team have been incredible. The way they work with & accept my son, encourage him & challenge him is amazing."

PARENT CARER

"The Cavalier Centre staff and volunteers are absolutely amazing, they have ‘read’ (my child) like no other professional has and she has dealt with a lot! Seeing the absolute calm on her face during her first session made us cry. (she) feels safe and calm which rarely happens."
