Aiming High Consultation 2021

Swindon Borough Council working with
Swindon SEND Families Voice


The Aiming High Team provide opportunities for children and young people with disabilities to enjoy social and leisure activities outside of school hours, whilst giving parents and carers a short break from caring. This is sometimes called ‘short breaks’. Aiming High is for children and young people with disabilities up to their 18th birthday.


All local authorities must have a Short Breaks Statement to explain the range of short break services provided in the area, any criteria and how services are designed to meet the needs of carers. Swindon's Short Breaks Statement is due for review. We have been working with Swindon SEND Families Voice to review the Aiming High service. Now we want to make sure you have the chance to give your views.


We want to ensure this consultation is shared as widely as possible. Please share this information with families, service providers and any other interested parties.
