Suffolk Local Offer

Activities Unlimited

Short breaks open to all children and young people with SEND in Suffolk.

Introducing Activities Unlimited

Activities Unlimited is part of Suffolk County Council. We give grants to activity providers around the county, to enable them to put on high quality, inclusive groups, clubs and activities for children and young people with additional needs and disabilities. We believe that children and young people with SEND should have access to the same opportunities as their peers without additional needs.

These Personal Budgets are needs-based and reserved for the children with the highest level of need - find out whether you could be eligible to receive a Short Breaks Personal Budget by clicking the button below.

Support for families

Every child is different, and we know that one size doesn't fit all.

If you're struggling to find a short break suitable for your child or you've got any other queries about short breaks or what's on in your area, email our Family Advice team.
