Groups and Activities for Disabled Children

Salford's short break care activities programme offers children and young people with a disability the chance to meet other people and have fun in safe, friendly environments supervised by trained staff.

There are a range of activities on offer in both term-time and holidays for children and young people up to 18 years old including holiday play schemes, play groups, after school clubs, sports clubs and youth groups across Salford. Some of these activities are groups just for disabled children or young people but some are also open to their non-disabled siblings and/or parents to attend with them.

How do I find out more about what's on offer?

Visit our page to find more about the list of the organisations that provide these activities. This includes play schemes, after school activities, sports clubs and youth groups and listing activities and contact details can be found on Things to do. Please contact the organisation to check whether there are currently places on the activity that you are interested in.

You do not need to have an assessment to attend the activities, and places are offered on a first come first served basis. However some groups or activities may be more suited to children or young people with a particular disability. Always contact the provider first before attending your first session. You may have to pay a small contribution for your child to attend these activities but many of them are free of charge. Further information on the short break care offer and eligibility can be found in the short break care statement, available to download on this page.
