About Us

Out & About & away is dedicated to meeting the social needs of children, young people and adults who have disabilities, chronic health problems or mental health problems. We are a Social Enterprise which means we only charge as much as we need to cover our costs.
We can take children and young people out for day trips, weekends away or even on holiday. We have trained Support Workers (most are student nurses) who can provide whatever care and support you need. you can pay for our services with Direct Payments from the Social Services. We only have female staff working with girls and all our staff have been checked by the police (CRB Checks).
We can take you to a concert or to see a film or musical or we can take you swimming or out for some retail therapy. Whatever you want to do.
