Gimme a Break - Winchelsea School

Is your child aged 12 or over? Would they like to spend time having fun with friends and making new friends in a safe environment?

Gimme a Break is a youth club run at Winchelsea School on Friday evenings between 7.00pm and 9.00pm aimed specifically at young people aged 12 or over with disabilities.

The club is run by Gimme a Break which is a not for profit organisation staffed by support workers who are experienced in working with SEN children.

We are prepared to be flexible regarding the upper age limit and will review this on a case by case basis. All attendees must have SEN.
