Give Us A Break is a charity run by volunteers in the Wolverhampton area providing activities during school holidays for children and young people with severe and complex learning difficulties and physical impairments.
It is aimed at children and young people between 2-25 years old, with severe and complex learning difficulties and physical impairments. It was established in Wolverhampton to allow children with special needs to have access to activities that are appropriate to their needs and interests.
The criteria for eligibility is that the child would find it difficult or impossible to access mainstream activities.
The aim of the group is not to provide respite but to provide a safe and understanding environment for children and young people to participate in activities with their families. However some children do attend with a carer or PA allowing the rest of the family to have a break. Other parents and families offer support and there are opportunities to share ideas and information. Children and young people can attend activities with their brothers and sisters and other members of their families knowing that other families will understand and support them. Brothers and sisters are welcome to join in.
Activities provided have included: private hire of swimming, adventure playgrounds, sensory rooms and centres and trips and visits to places of interest.
