Fun and Breaks (FAB) is part of the Short Breaks programme for disabled children and young people aged 0-18.
Volunteers support disabled children and young people in accessing social activities. This gives them an opportunity to increase their confidence and independence, make friends and learn new skills whilst having fun.
A volunteer may take the child or young person out to an activity - to a club, swimming or the park - or they may stay with them in the child’s home, playing together, baking, reading, doing arts and crafts or simply relaxing.
Parents, carers and siblings can use this time to have a rest (respite), catch up on day-to-day activities or spend time with each other.
