Leisure and things to do

Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)


Mainstream activities

There are lots of activities, groups and events that take place across Trafford and the surrounding areas. These are often called mainstream or universal activities.

Depending on you or your child’s requirements, many mainstream activities could be suitable. On each listing, we aim to include as much accessibility information as possible to help you choose one that is right for you and your child. You should always contact an activity before you go to make sure they can accomodate you or your child's needs. 

Specialist activities

Some activities are designed for children and young people who may not be able to access every activity because of an additional need. These are often called specialist activities.

Whether you are looking for parent and toddler groups, specialist play sessions, holiday activities, sensory play areas, toy libraries or adapted leisure and cultural activities - you can find them here all on:

Short breaks

Short breaks may also available for children and young people with complex and additional needs. These are designed to give carers a break from caring responsibilities, whilst giving your child access to leisure and social opportunities in a supportive environment.

Share what you know

We know parents and families are often a great source of information. You can help other families by sharing what you know. Do you know of any groups or activities that you, or your child, enjoyed and could access? Feedback to us here
