Holidays, play and leisure

Information for families

Many disabled children and young people say that leisure and play – after school, in the holidays and at weekends – is the most important missing element in their lives. Parents strive to make opportunities for these but often find many unnecessary barriers, including a basic lack of information about what’s available.

This guide provides some information about what play and leisure options may be available and where to find more information. It also has information about arranging holidays for disabled children and details of organisations which provide grants for these types of activities.
