SEN Activities in and around Torbay

SEN Activities
A range of businesses and organisations are now offering SEN Activities in and around Torbay as a provision for their customers. This enables greater accessibility and inclusion for families and individuals with additional needs to be able to enjoy what they offer.
We thought it would be great to gather details about these and put them in a central location. We wanted to make it as easy as possible for families to be able to find out information they need.
  • Are you a business or organisation that offers SEN Activities?
