Supporting People Living With Special Needs and Disabilities ~ Connecting people, Changing lives…

Respite and Support

Connecting People, Changing Lives

ASNA organises annual respite and training weekends for families living with disabilities. All the weekends take place in the beautiful UK countryside.

During the weekends, families living with disability meet for mutual emotional and social support. There are theme-specific workshops for parents and carers.

Children and adults with special needs also attend  as an inclusive programme is provided, supported by trained and CRB checked volunteer carers.

We also organise annual family fun days to places such as Thorpe park, West Midlands Safari Park, Woburn Safari Park and Cotswold Safari Park. We have supported over 100 families living with disabilities and special needs through the provision of family fun days, respite weekends and resources.

We hosted our first Carers weekend in September 2005. The Carers weekend provided much needed respite, physical, emotional and social support for the many carers who care for loved ones with limited access to support  for themselves. Workshops included topics such as - Managing and preventing the detrimental effects of stress, Managing your finances: Dealing with debt, Building strong relationships. Also available at the weekend for relaxation are countryside walks, heated swimming pool, gym and spa.
