ADULT SHORT BREAKS
The Adventure Service provides Adult Short Breaks for adults and teenagers with learning disabilities and additional support needs. These Adult Short Breaks usually take place in some beautiful areas, located in the Peak District National Park.
The main aims of the Adult Short Breaks are to develop the independent living and social skills of our Adventurers.
The Adventure Service provides multiple Adult Short Breaks a year. Each weekend break runs from Friday evening until Sunday evening and we provide transport from both our centres on Friday between 4:00 PM and 4:30 PM. We are also beginning to offer a mid-week Adult Short Break. Transport will also be provided from both centres on Monday at the same time.
Accommodation is dormitory style, with camping in the summer months, and everyone who attends is supported to help with tasks such as food preparation and cleaning up!
Each Adult Short Break has an outdoor theme such as canoeing, caving, rock climbing, bushcraft, gorge walking and many more!
Adventurers who attend our Day Service plan the menu, resources and the activities in the weeks leading up to the visit.
Our Adult Short Breaks are open to teenagers and adults with additional support needs. This provides an excellent opportunity to spend time with peers whilst also giving parents and carers a weekend break.
Staffing is based on a ratio of 1:4.
