Lifeworks Community Projects offer a range of fun and worthwhile activities for children and young people with learning disabilities.
Community Projects activities give young people the chance to make and meet up with friends, improve their health, try new activities and support to achieve their best futures. From short breaks to inclusive sports and our Extraordinary Young People project, we offer opportunities which open up possibilities.
Community Projects are co-designed by the young people themselves. Our young people should decide what their tomorrow looks like. So with their ideas, hopes and aspirations we work with a network of local community partners to make it happen.
Below you’ll find more information about our current Community Projects on offer
Lifeworks Short Breaks
Lifeworks offer a variety of rich and rewarding short breaks for children and young people with learning disabilities. We understand how vital short breaks are for families. All of our short breaks are designed around the needs of the children and young people
Breaking the Barrier
Experience the thrill of catching a wave and maybe even standing on a surf board. Or see the joy of siblingss cycling together in tandem for the first time. Breaking the Barrier makes sport easy and enjoyable for young people with learning disabilities and their families to take part in. It gets people together to have fun with sport in a supported environment, surrounded by people willing them on.
The Holiday Project provides short break adventures during the school holidays for young people with learning disabilities aged 12-17. It offers opportunities for fun, friendships and new experiences with a skilled staff team.
