Children with additional needs

Our experience and inclusive approach ensures we can offer extra support and assistance for children with additional needs.  

All of our activities are accessible for children with non-physical needs, with patience, understanding and experience the main tools for support.

Depending on the severity of an individual’s disability, some of our activities can be adapted for children with physical needs. Many activities have special equipment to help less physically able children take part including aerial runway, sailing, canoeing & archery.
