Imago - Short Breaks

Imago delivers two new and innovative programmes for our Short Breaks Service for disabled children and young people in Kent.

Youth Cafés for 8-15 year olds, focusing on building confidence, participation, life skills and independence. (2hrs once a fortnight)

Saturday Clubs for 15-19 year olds, focusing on transition and progression, providing young people with activities that utilise the facilities in their local community (6hrs once a month)

Sessions are offered in every district of Kent and are heavily subsidised with a small parental contribution, which is waived in case of hardship. Children will also be offered additional full day activities which will take place in school holidays.
