Short Breaks Project:

Our Afterschool Club aims to give children and young people the opportunity to have fun, socialise and be independent, whilst giving families a break from their caring role. It is supported by grants from Kent County Council for children and young people who meet the following criteria:

  • have moderate, severe or profound learning disabilities

  • live within the districts of Tunbridge Wells or Tonbridge & Malling

Day: Thursday

Time: 5:30-7:30pm

Location: Southborough or Tonbridge

Parental contribution: £8 per session



Making a Referral

Referrals can be made directly from parents/carers using the form below. All referrals will be assessed to ensure they meet the criteria stated above and are then prioritised based on a range of factors. We have a limited number of spaces available at our services and typically receive very high demand, which means unfortunately a referral does not guarantee a space. 

All spaces will be for the period of May 2022 to March 2023.


Waiting List 2022-23

All spaces for May 2022 to March 2023 have now been allocated. If you would like to add your child to our waiting list for our Afterschool Short Break Activities, please click on the button below to access the online referral form.
