Services that support disabled young people in their own homes or to access their local community and have fun can make a real difference to them

Fun Holiday Activity Days for disabled children and young people

Action for Children Cornwall SPACE is a Cornwall Council funded service providing Holiday Activities for disabled children and young people aged between 5 – 18 years. We offer disabled children and young people exciting new activities to try, providing families with an all-important short break.

We also offer three youth groups for young disabled people between 13 – 25 years. These youth groups run at Fourways in St.Blazey, Hayle Youth Project in Hayle and Chy Trevail in Bodmin. 

Referral Criteria

Children and young people are able to access these short breaks and youth groups if they have one of the following:

  • A Statement of Educational Needs (SEN) Band 1-3
  • An Educational Health Care Plan (EHCP)
  • A learning disability as defined by the Equality Act 2010 - “a child or young person that has a physical or mental impairment that has ‘substantial’ and ‘long term’ negative effects on their ability to do normal daily activities’.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like more information about our criteria and referral process.

Fun and Inclusive

We arrange lots of fun activities like puppetry, theatre trips, art sessions and outdoor activities.
