Aireborough Supported Activities Scheme organise six residential short breaks per year.

The first of these takes place in Spring and the last in Autumn.

We cater for children & young people aged  8 years to 18th birthday, who have additional needs.

This includes: learning disabilities, autism, physical disabilities, and more.

Places are available to children throughout Leeds who don't currently receive overnight short breaks. 

We have highly experienced leaders who are fully DBS checked and trusted members of our team.

They care for the children 24 hours per day, help with feeding, bathing and also sleep in the bedrooms

with the children for their safety and security.

We cater for children with medical needs, special dietary requirements, challenging behaviours and more,

and we do whatever we can to make each residential a positive and fun experience for every child. We also do everything we can to support the parents, as we understand that it can be nerve-racking to have your child stay away from home and in someone else's care.

We cater for between upto 18 children per residential


Most residentials are for 2 nights, either Friday to Sunday or Sunday to Tuesday.

Yearly we do a 5 day/4 night residential and try to offer these to families who really need a break.

We use three outdoor activity centres for our residentials,

these are: Lineham Farm, Herd Farm and Low Mill.

Whilst on residential and depending on the site we do a variety of activities including: art, animal care, adapted bikes, gorge walking, climbing and much more.
