Sibz also have the opportunity to attend an overnight residential trip and occasional day trips during the school holidays.

Youth Groups
Daisy Chain runs a number of social clubs and youth groups for young people aged from 5-17. The sessions are structured and provide opportunities for interactions and friendships between young people. Places are allocated to the young person for the club most suitable for them, based on the information provided to us in their Care Plan. These groups are available to all young people with a diagnosis of Autism.
