Specialised clubs for disabled children and young people
Specialised clubs are for disabled children and young people only. Sheffield City Council has commissioned these clubs. You can only access them through a referral from SNIPS.
These clubs have:
- trained staff
- adapted premises
- activities suitable for children and young people's needs, abilities and interests.
Who can attend?
Children and young people aged between 5 and 17 years with a disability who need a higher level of support.
If a SNIPS short break club is agreed
If a SNIPS short break club is agreed then your child/young person will receive either:
- one session of up to 5 hours per week, during the school holidays, or
- alternate Saturday sessions of up to 5 hours during the term time, or
- one session after School per week during the term time
A member of the SNIPS team will meet you and your child or young person to get details of their interests and support needs. They will create a profile and complete a risk or behaviour plan (if appropriate) which the club gets to help them meet your child’s needs.
