Holiday Project includes a rich and varied programme of recreational, leisure and arts activities that give teenagers the chance to enrich and extend their experience—developing a sense of community, belonging and independence that lasts far beyond the school holidays.
Short Breaks in the School Holidays
The Holiday Project provides quality short break day adventures during the school holidays for young people with learning disabilities aged 12-17.
Offering opportunities for fun, friendships and new experiences whilst exploring the 5 ways to well-being:
2. Be ACTIVE
3. Keep Learning
5. Take Notice
= Feel better
A chance for you to take a break
Another important element of the Holiday Project is that its benefits reach far further than the youngsters joining us and having fun. It offers families short breaks from their roles as carers – allowing parents and carers valuable time to spend with siblings, or simply the chance for some vital “me-time”
MORE THAN SCHOOL HOLIDAY ACTIVITIES
Holiday Projects offers highly skilled staff and opportunities to help young people with learning disabilities.
For the participants themselves, this isn’t about wanting the extraordinary. It’s about living an ordinary teenage life. We offer that and more!

Sports, arts, outward bound experiences, as well as visiting and connecting with local venues.

Developing resilience, confidence and independence.
Socialise and create lasting relationships

Exciting Activities and Supported Care
The Holiday project runs over 4 days each week during the Easter & Summer holiday and October & February Half terms.
Activities are developed in partnership with Lifeworks Extraordinary Young People plus a network of activity providers across South Devon and Torbay.
Each Holiday Project becomes an innovative and fun, creative arts and physical activity programme. Activities include; music-making, drama, dance, adventure & community sports, cookery, foraging, farming and food production – to name but a few of the sessions that make the Holiday Project so exciting. These activities provide opportunities to develop key skills such as socialising, personal safety and healthy living – and most importantly – are packed full of fun!
