GetActive @ The Green 

GetActive @ The Green is a Short Breaks service for children with complex needs and disabilities aged 12 - 18. Sessions run from 11 am to 3pm on Saturdays and focus on physical activities, inclusive sport and active play. 

What Support is Available?

We will meet with you and your child to discuss your child's needs, the types of activities they enjoy and how we can best provide support. We will assess your transport needs at the point of referral and, if appropriate, offer your child 1-to-1 travel training.

We hold most sessions at our secure and fully accessible Fortune Green Playcentre. Indoor facilities include a large activity area and sensory room. Outdoors, we offer a wide range of play areas including a garden, woodland areas, a multi-sports pitch and adventure playground.

What Activities Are On Offer?

We plan each session to accommodate the preferences, interests and abilities of the children. Most activities are held at our fully accessible Fortune Green Playcentre, with occasional trips to outside activities. Here are some of the most popular activities we offer:
