Short Breaks provider information and guidance
All activity providers can be fully inclusive. If you are a provider, this information can help you be more inclusive.
We provide information on what needs to be considered, how to identify some easy changes that you can make to your organisation or setting immediately, and provide activities that includes young people and parents.
If you would like to discuss or require support creating an inclusive activity provision, we would like to hear from you. Contact us directly and provide us with a brief description of your service, where you are based on the Isle of Wight, and your contact details.
