Secondary age leisure and libraries information

Activities across Wiltshire that are accessible to the SEND community.

Short breaks

Short breaks are accessible activities and leisure opportunities that children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) can participate in. Wiltshire's Short Breaks Scheme, has been designed in consultation with parents and carers, it is open to children and young people aged 6 to 18 years old with an EHCP.

For how to apply and information about the scheme please visit:

Short Breaks

The Wiltshire Parent Carer Council (WPCC) also hosts information on Short Breaks and publishes regular Short Breaks Bulletins about what is available and the application process.

For more helpful information from WPCC please visit their pages on Leisure activities and Wiltshire Parent Carer Council: What's on in Wiltshire.

Changing Places

Every day adults, children, and their carers struggle to access their community and local area because they are unable to use standard accessible toilet facilities - something that many of us take for granted. Wiltshire Council is committed to enabling everyone within the community access to our vibrant towns, services and local amenities. We are proud to support the national Changing Places campaign.

Changing Places facilities can be accessed by Radar key.

The Radar National Key enables access to disabled toilets for people with disabilities and can be purchased from Disability Rights UK and some tourist information points.
