What is the Summer Scheme Programme?

Children and young people are referred to the Mencap Summer Scheme Programme via their Learning Disability Social Worker and should live within the Belfast Health and Trust area.

The provision is for those children and young people who cannot access any other summer school or service during the summer months.

The summer activity programme offers a specialised programme for children and young people aged 4-18 years old, with high support needs.

Activities are offered both at our Mencap Centre and out and about.

The scheme enables young people with a learning disability to enjoy age appropriate activities and encourages independence. It enables the young people to make new friends, build on existing friendships, grow in confidence and acquire or develop social and life skills.

*Please note you must be referred by a Learning Disability Social Worker to attend the Mencap NI Summer Scheme Programme and live in the Belfast Health Trust.
