Barnardo's Community Short Breaks delivers After School Club provision for 5-18 year olds within Kingfisher School in Abingdon. Our activities are designed for children and young people with complex physical and/or learning disabilities. We provide a safe and comfortable space for them to enjoy spending time with their friends, encouraging social skills and time to relax whilst having fun. We cater for the younger age range as well as ensuring older children have access to activities that they would enjoy as teenagers.
