Disability Short Breaks

Disability Short Breaks
Sport Works Greater Manchester has extensive expertise in providing sport and exercise services for disabled children. Our model has been designed to improve the health and wellbeing of young people who take part while also providing an opportunity for respite for parents and carers.

Our activities consist of multi sports coaching and swimming for children aged 3 to 18 and are delivered both after school and during holiday periods. We work closely with Local Authorities and Parent Groups to ensure that our sessions meet a local need and have an emphasis upon inclusion and adaptation of activity. We operate low staff ratio’s of 1:4 and 1:1 provision can also be made available where required. Differentiation methods are used within sessions to ensure that children are signposted to groups that are structured most closely to their developmental age, disability and individual requirements.
