Aiming High Consultation 2021

The Aiming High Team provide opportunities for children and young people with disabilities to enjoy social and leisure activities outside of school hours, whilst giving parents and carers a short break from caring. This is sometimes called ‘short breaks’. Aiming High is for children and young people with disabilities up to their 18th birthday. 

All local authorities must have a Short Breaks Statement to explain the range of short break services provided in the area, any criteria and how services are designed to meet the needs of carers. Swindon's Short Breaks Statement is due for review. We have been working with Swindon SEND Families Voice and STEP Swindon to review the Aiming High service and look at where we may need to make changes. This was followed by a public consultation between 13 April 2021 and 11 May 2021.

We are now analysing the responses, in partnership with Swindon SEND Families Voice and will keep this page updated with the next steps.
