Short Breaks

We recomend that you also look at Short Breaks, Respite and Overnight Breaks section on this website.  Activities that are Aiming High Commissioned Short Breaks are marked with an * in the list below.  This means that they are free of charge or subsidised for families in Kingston and Richmond.

Activity Funding of up to £140 per year may be available as a contribution or to fund other activities of your child's choice.

Additional Support Funding pays for additional support for children and young people with disabilities, complex health and special needs who access mainstream short break activities. An activity provider can apply for the additional support funding, which allows an increase in their staff ratio. The funding pays for a designated staff member to work with a child or young person who requires additional support whilst taking part in an activity.
