Worcestershire Short Breaks

Autism West Midlands is funded by Worcestershire Council to deliver a monthly kids club, and a monthly youth club in Worcestershire. These take place in Redditch and Kidderminster and are open to children and young people who live in Worcestershire and have a diagnosis on the autism spectrum.

Registration is required for all children. Click here to register online. Alternatively you can call Claire Berwick on 0121 4507582 and we can take your details over the phone.

Shropshire

Autism West Midlands provides short break activities in Shropshire for children with autism who may otherwise be excluded from mainstream opportunities. Activities we have run include photography workshops, music and drama workshops, board games and Lego clubs. We also run a 5 week summer holiday programme for young people aged 14-18 in Shrewsbury.

Short break activities enable parents to have a break from their caring responsibilities and children to make new friends and gain new skills.

To access our activities children must be registered with Shropshire Council’s All-In programme.
