The Holiday Project


The Holiday project is being developed in partnership with young people age 12-19 plus a fantastic network of activity providers and cultural venues across Devon. We aim to provide recreational and leisure opportunities across each holiday that enrich and extend experience; offer young people with learning disabilities a sense of community; belonging and independence.

“Doing sport is amazing, you get to work as a team” L – participant 2016

“I did high ropes and zip wire. You got to go to heights that you never think you will. I set goals for myself. I was a scaredy cat but I did it. My harness kept me safe. I had a great time.” D – participant 2016

“I was really, really impressed by the summer school… in the range of activities that L got to participate in; the way staff collaborated with the young people taking part, it boosted L’s confidence massively at a time when she really needed it.” Parent – 2016
