Activity Breaks

What we do

Nutley Edge Activity Breaks are Outward’s supported respite holidays for adults with learning disabilities and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD.) Outward bought Nutley Edge Cottages in 2012 in order to run the activity breaks, which are in the heart of East Sussex and are 5 days and four nights – Monday to Friday.

Each activity break has a different theme and these include; Mad about animals, Pampering, arts & crafts, East Sussex Sightseeing, Sports & Outdoor pursuits and much more!

“I had a good time and met new people, I want to come back here as it’s nice, quiet and comfortable” Jacqueline

“I enjoyed making bread, kneading it was fun!” Mandy

“Good to be away from home, Nutley Edge makes me feel very confident” Trevor

“My service user is fun loving and friendly but needs to be supported in a very person-centred way because of his dislike of change and his need for structure and routine. Florence and the team made him and his family feel so comfortable and even on his first trip he seemed so happy. The Nutley Edge breaks are a great resource which enable people with learning disabilities to have breaks away from home which they truly enjoy. They also work with families well, offering re-assurance, transparent risk assessment and putting the person at the centre of the experience. They are a great alternative to conventional respite services.” From a social worker
