Our Park House at Park House offers young disabled people, between nine and 18 years, a short break service that is not available through family-based care services.

Disability sport and physical activity for youngsters with physical and learning disabilities are included in sport and leisure activities.

The Families Information Service is a free and impartial information service that supports families with children and young people on all aspects of family life. On the Families Information Service website there is a Families Information Service: Local Offer section which makes it easier to find everything you need to know for 0-25 year olds with special educational needs or disabilities.
