Sign up for the new CACT 'short breaks'

Posted by

Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) is pleased to now be registering for the next ‘Short Breaks’ weekend programme, taking place every Saturday from 9th January to the 13th February 2016.

‘Short Breaks’ with CACT is a scheme for young people with disabilities aged from 13-19 years (and up to 25 years where part of a support plan) in the London Borough of Greenwich.

The scheme involves a range of exciting on- and off-site activities including theatre and
cinema trips, bowling, swimming, crazy golf, as well as trips to the farm, zoo and adventure playgrounds, to name a few.

‘Short Breaks’ are for young people across the borough and we provide services for all types of disability. Please note that priority will be given to children who have not yet accessed any of the Short Breaks schemes.

The scheme will run from 9am – 2pm every Saturday for six weeks, with transport provided.
