Staff and trustees at Enable Ability, a Portsmouth-based charity that provides services for people with disabilities throughout South East Hampshire, are delighted to learn that they had been awarded a contract for the next 3 to 5 years to deliver ‘Short Breaks’ respite activities for families of children with disabilities. Potentially amounting to more than £1 million over 5 years this award now ensures continuity and consistency for services that it has been delivering for many years.
All of Enable Ability’s projects are disability-focussed and the five key services that this contract will fund comprise: specialist playschemes for high-dependency needs children, inclusive playscheme provision for children with mild to moderate special needs, a Junior Club for 5-12 year olds, a teenage club running during school term-times and a holiday-specific scheme for teenagers.
Employing over 100 staff members throughout the year to deliver high quality programmes of stimulating activities, the funding will enable the charity to maintain its existing levels of service in all areas whilst fully meeting the needs of the children, ensuring their safety and maximising the benefit that they receive.
