Carers' Respite Trips - Wokingham and Bracknell

Skittles can be very competitive!

We organise regular trips to the theatre and Christmas markets for carers of someone with a learning disability/ASC to allow carers to have some respite time for themselves. Some respite trips are specific to Wokingham or Bracknell members depending on funding. Occasionally we run combined trips for all carers and families. Our respite trips are funded by the Wokingham Borough Council Carers Grant and Bracknell's Learning Disability Partnership Board
