Aireborough Supported Activities Scheme organise between 5 & 8 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 we do whatever we can to make the whole thing a positive and pleasurable experience, not only for the child but we also understand that parents can be very anxious allowing their child to stay away from home
for the first time and entrusting someone else with their 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.
