In order to provide respite for families, we provide 1:1 or 2:1 care and support for their children and for young people from 5 to 25 years of age, when they complete their transition from children’s to adults' services.

There are three different age groups:
  • Adventurers (5-11 years)

  • Going to the beach
  • Visits to forests and play farms
  • Barbecues and picnics

Group activities at school, after school and on weekends

In Explorers, there is an increasing focus on developing choice-making skills and independence in preparation for leaving school, going to college or moving into supported living away from home. 
The young people are involved in planning the activities, making their own meals and developing their lifeskills.
