Short Breaks (Aiming High)
Aiming High in Staffordshire commissions short break activities for children and young people with a disability or special educational need/additional need and their families.
Short breaks provide fun activities outside of the school day where children and young people can try new things and develop confidence independently from their families or as part of a family experience.
For more information you may like to watch some short YouTube clips of Aiming High activities.

Having Your Say on Staffordshire's Short Break Activities - Aiming High
If you are a parent or carer of a child/young person with SEND Staffordshire County Council wants to hear from you…!
As part of Staffordshire’s recent ‘Shaping the future of SEND Specialist Support and Assessment’ Programme we started to talk to parents and carers of children and young people with SEND about our Short Breaks offer.
You told us as part of the SEND Programme we need to continue to deliver Community Based Short Breaks for children and young people with SEND, currently delivered via our Aiming High Programme. Staffordshire’s current contracts for the provision of Aiming High Activities will expire on 31st March 2016.
In order to shape our future Community Based Short Breaks offer, in partnership with parents and carers of children and young people of SEND, we would be grateful if you could take a few moments to follow this link to complete our online survey.
The survey will be open until 11 September 2015.
We are also running some parent/carer engagement sessions where you can come and share your views on:
