The Holiday project is being developed in partnership with young people age 12-19 plus a fantastic network of activity providers and cultural venues across Devon. We aim to provide recreational and leisure opportunities across each holiday that enrich and extend experience; offer young people with learning disabilities a sense of community; belonging and independence.
