Overnight Breaks

Please note Overnight Breaks will be temporarily paused from December 2023 whilst we under-go service development.

Our overnight breaks give our service users time to really enjoy being together over the course of a weekend whilst giving carers and parents valuable time as well. Grouped according to age, care needs and what they like to do, activities can include camping, seaside visits, and activity centres. Each group is supported by an experienced, enthusiastic staff team with a ratio that provides high quality care, aimed at promoting the independence of the individuals.
