We offer young disabled people the opportunity to undertake work related learning activities during the half term, Easter and summer holidays. The programme offers young people the chance to develop their office skills and confidence in a vibrant and fun environment. It is very effective in developing young people's personal and professional skills for later adult life.
In the October and May half terms as well as the Easter and Summer holidays, young people take part in the organisation and planning of a range of events, including the Summer & Winter Reunion Parties. These have become ‘must attend events' for many of the young people who have benefited from Action For Kids' Services.
Throughout the year we also involve young people in the organising and planning of various other activities, such as ten-pin bowling, ice skating, street carnivals and summer/winter fairs.
The programme is run during the following holidays:
Half terms: Feb, June and October
Easter: March and April
Summer: July and August
If you would like to know more about our Holiday Programme, or book a place for a young person, please call 020 8347 8111 or email us.
Inspire Mark Awarded
National disability charity, Action For Kids has been granted the Inspire Mark by the London 2012 Inspire programme, in recognition of its Multi Activity School Holiday Programme.
The London 2012 Inspire programme recognises innovative and exceptional projects that are directly inspired by the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and Action For Kids has been awarded the mark for its holiday activity programme for young disabled people, which includes a range of Paralympic sports.
Sports such as boccia, volleyball and tennis are featured within the charity’s participative and stimulating holiday programme, to help build anticipation and excitement amongst its students ahead of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
In addition to its range of Paralympic sports, the Action For Kids Multi Activity School Holiday Programme includes music classes, gardening, arts and crafts, dance workshops as well as picnics and day-trips. The programme also gives students the chance to develop their office skills and confidence in a vibrant and fun environment as part of the charity’s Work Related Learning programme.
