We provide practical help and support to those with a learning disability, ensuring that they have opportunities to try new activities, make new friends and experience greater levels of independence. We’ll make full use of the outdoor heated pool and bicycles for exploring the site and surrounding forest. Together we can swing on the low ropes, hit the archery target and sing around the campfire.

We learn about God’s love for us through Bible stories and times of worship that are planned in lots of exciting multi-sensory ways.

There are guidelines on expected behaviour and ability, so an additional application form will be sent to you before your child’s place is confirmed. This also allows us to properly meet their individual needs.

This holiday is based at Great Wood (TA5 1HN) which is a secure site surrounded by woods owned by The Great Wood Trust, a Scripture Union ministry partner,in the Quantocks near Bridgwater. Holidays are able to use the outdoor swimming pool, low ropes course and archery facilities as well as explore the fantastic countryside nearby. Young people sleep in en-suite cabins with 4-8 people per room.

Please note that although the site is, to a certain extent, wheelchair friendly, a lot of the activities will need some walking.
