Aiming High For disabled children in Poole
DISABLED children in Poole are to benefit from £150,000 investment in facilities and equipment as part of the Aiming High Short Breaks initiative.
Cabinet approved the distribution of funding for a number of projects all of which will transform the Short Breaks programme.
Following engagement with parents, carers and disabled children about what they would like to see the money spent on, bids were assessed and the money has been awarded to eight organisations.
The money will be used for new equipment at sports facilities including race chairs, throwing frames, open canoes, self-inflating life-jackets, as well as upgrading facilities to make them more accessible.

Councillor Janet Walton, Cabinet Portfolio Holder Borough of Poole, said: "I am delighted this vital work is coming to fruition to help improve the lives of disabled children across Poole. The project list reflects what parents and children want and the engagement with them was key when deciding how the grant was spent.
"The Short Breaks programme is wonderful and I hope that the uptake will only increase now that we have these improved facilities."
