Additional Needs Support

The Disability Play Access Project

Free, open access play opportunities for children aged 5 to 11 with disabilities and other support needs in an inclusive setting during the school summer holidays. Support workers offer assistance on a 1-1 basis to children so that they can play with children of their own peer group in a safe and friendly environment. The open access play sessions are held in 8 community venues in the county, offering play activities, recreation opportunities, games, arts and crafts, and a healthy snack.

Dal Dy Dir - Respite Breaks for Families with Disabilities

Dal Dy Dir provides respite and supported breaks for families with disabilities. We understand that the cost of specialist holidays can be prohibitive, so we have created a cost effective 6 day short term supported package at our primary location based in Newtown, Powys. We believe that we can help families within your authority at a lower cost than many providers and have created a range of services from supported holidays right through to 24 hours supervised residential placements.

Beyond Limits

Arthritis Care’s vision is of a world where people affected by arthritis can lead full and active lives. We aim to fulfil this vision by ensuring all people living with arthritis and their families receive the support and information to live well with arthritis, and have their voices heard.

The Challenging Behaviour Foundation

The Challenging Behaviour Foundation (CBF) exists to demonstrate that individuals with severe learning disabilities who are described as having challenging behaviour can enjoy normal life opportunities when their behaviour is properly understood and they receive appropriate individualised support.
The CBF supports families, professionals and other stakeholders through education, information, research and partnership working and works strategically to influence national policy and practice on behalf of individuals who challenge and their families.
