Activity Breaks

Outward run supported holidays for people with learning disabilities or Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and for those needing respite. These are called Activity Breaks.

Our Activity Breaks take place in East Sussex in the UK and are accessilbe holidays that give you the chance to get some country air, make friends and try new activities, to get away from the daily routine and have a proper break.

Every activity break is all-inclusive and run by onsite activity leaders, Outward support staff, and can accommodate people with a range of needs. Our guests have been getting involved in sports, art, music, visiting local attractions, photography, nature trails, baking, pampering, tie-dye and many other countryside pursuits.

This year our breaks are filling up quicker than ever, so please get in touch if you know of anyone who may enjoy an activity break with us.

Just call or email us using the contact information below if any of the activity breaks grab your interest. We are happy to explain more over the phone. Holidays are all-inclusive which means that accommodation, meals, activities, staff support and transport are all included. Prices start from £820 per person with payment plans available.

Covid-19 Risk Assessment

We are very pleased to announce the return of our activity breaks at Nutley Edge but in order to ensure the safety of all, we have made a few changes to how our breaks are run - for now we will only have 6 guests per holiday. This is to allow for social distancing on the minibus and in the farmhouse when we are not able to be outside.

We have looked at all the government guidelines, made quite a few changes and created new procedures to follow in order to keep everyone safe and well.

For information about how we are ensuring everyone’s safety once we return to Nutley Edge please read the following risk assessments:
