Short Breaks Services Event: Family Fun Day

Do you look after a child with a disability of additional needs? Would you like to find out more about services which help you and the child? Then why not come along to the Short Breaks Family Fun Day on Saturday 23rd March?

The day is for the whole family and provides a great opportunity for children with a disability or additional needs to play and make friends while their family can find out more about the help and support which is available.

Short Breaks services help children and young people to try new things, have fun and make friends as well as providing parents, carers and families with support and short breaks from their caring responsibilities.

 

Specialist Holiday Play Schemes

You can also find out about the specialist holiday play schemes and inclusive universal services available and book your spaces for the summer, including:

  • Autism Bedfordshire
  • Bedford and District Cerebral Palsy Society
  • Bedford Mencap
  • Families United Network
  • Mainstream Play Schemes

 

Speed Networking

The organization Contact a Family, will also be facilitating a ‘speed networking’ activity at the event, where families can book a 15 minute discussion with some of the people responsible for health, education and social care services in Bedford Borough.

Councillor Sue Oliver, Portfolio Holder for Children’s Social Care, said: “As a former foster carer and special needs teacher I know the right help and support can make an enormous difference to the lives of people living with disabilities and additional needs."

“The Short Breaks Family Fun Days provide an excellent opportunity for children and young people to try new activities and make new friends while their parents, families or carers can find out, first hand, exactly what support is available to them."

“I am sure this event will be well supported and I look forward to meeting the visitors on the day.”
