Many disabled children say that leisure and play are the most important things missing in their lives — often due to accessibility barriers and a basic lack of information available locally. 

So to help your family make the most of summer together, you’re invited to take part in a special Q&A session with our advisers next week where you can get advice about accessing holidays, activities and short breaks for your disabled child. 

The Q&A will take place on Thursday 22 June, between 10–11:30am, in our private Facebook Group for parent carers.

This a great opportunity to get advice on issues such as: 

  • Getting help with holiday costs 
  • Disability-friendly venues 
  • Accessing short breaks 
  • Finding suitable play schemes 
  • Accessing special equipment and toys

How to join the Q&A 

To take part, you must be a member of our Facebook Group. Simply answer the three membership questions when prompted, and one of our moderators will let you in.

Then, visit our group anytime between 10-11:30am on 22 June to ask your question under our special Q&A post. 

The session will be carried out in writing (not a live video). This means you don’t have to stay for the whole duration: just pop your question in the comments, and then come back at a time that suits you to read our reply! 

Can’t make it on Thursday? 

If you can’t make it, don’t worry! You will still be able to read through the Q&A in our Facebook Group even after the session is finished. 

We also have lots of information about holidays, play and activities on our website, as well as advice about accessing short breaks, finding charitable grants and applying for leisure discounts.
