Go Beyond (formerly CHICKS) offers free week long respite breaks for underprivileged children and children bereaved of parents from across the UK. Breaks run between February and December. All the children and young people who attend a Go Beyond break are referred to us by a professional, such as a teacher, social worker or youth worker. This means our support is available for the children and young people who need us the most.
Breaks are currently run from either Daleside Centre in Derbyshire or in Tywardreath, near Par in Cornwall, for children aged 8 – 15-years-old. Each break accommodates 16 children from one of the following three school key stages: Key Stage 2, ages 8-11, Key Stage 3, ages 11-13 and Key Stage 4, ages 14-15. which ensures a friendly and supportive family atmosphere. The children take part in a host of fun activities.
