Go Beyond (formerly CHICKS) offers free week long respite breaks for underprivileged children and children bereaved of parents from across the UK from ages 8 to 18. Breaks run between February and December. All the children and young people who attend a Go Beyond break are referred by a professional, such as a teacher, social worker or youth worker. This means the support is available for the children and young people who need us the most.
Breaks are currently run 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.
