Short Breaks
For children and young people aged 7-19 with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND)

Vivacity's short breaks activities and holiday club provides opportunities for children and young people aged 7-19 with SEND to spend time away from parents and carers within quality services.

We feel it is important for children and young adults to come together to be social, engage in activities and support each other. We understand that a lot of children and young adults with SEND can often feel isolated in other mainstream environments, but at Vivacity Short Breaks they can relax in a quiet space, participate in tailored activities, make friends with others and have some fun. 

Vivacity Short Breaks Club venue: The Focus Centre, Chestnut Ave, Peterborough PE1 4PE
