Extratime is an award-winning charity providing play and leisure activities for hundreds of children and young people with and without disabilities across Brighton & Hove and West Sussex. At Extratime clubs and holiday schemes, children and young people with disabilities, complex medical needs and conditions such as autism, have the specialist support they need to have fun, try new things and make new friends. Families consistently tell us that that Extratime is their ‘life-line’ and this has been especially important during the pandemic as even the most resilient families with children and young people with disabilities have been extremely isolated and vulnerable. Our virtual [email protected] offer along with lots of other creative new ways to support families have been vital for our families and supported by our partners and funders.
The specialist care we provide broadens horizons for children and young people, and for their families, alleviates some of the extreme pressure of caring for a child with a disability.
