Imago delivers a range of community based Short Breaks across Kent providing opportunities for disabled children and young people to have enjoyable social experiences as well as offering a valuable break for their parents or carers. Short Breaks can enhance social development and reduce social isolation. 

 
 

Residential Fun Clubs

We offer overnight short breaks for disabled young people aged 10-17. The Clubs enable the young people to access mainstream activities alongside volunteers their own age and have lots of fun! There are 8 Clubs in Kent; an older and a younger group in each region. Typically this short break starts at 9am on the first day and finishes at 3 pm the following day. Experienced and trained staff help with any medication or personal care needs.

 

School Holiday & Weekend Fun Days

We offer a wide range of centre based or community based activities for six hours which include sport, art, drama, music, animals, heritage and much more.

 

After School Youth Cafes

We run during term time offering disabled young people aged 8-17 a social environment interacting alongside peer volunteers in activities such as games, cookery, music, art; building confidence, awareness, independence and positive attitudes.
