Sheffield City Council have confirmed the dates for their continued commissioned Short Breaks (SNIPS) sessions at MASKK.

See the dates below for your child’s groups. Snacks and fruit are available each session but remember to send a packed lunch. Please also remember a water bottle and spare clothes.

These sessions are for children with special educational needs and disabilities to come together and play while providing parents and carers with a little break.

New referrals are via Sheffield City Council only – for more information visit:

Please beaware our groups run at full capacity, with a waiting list, and so it is not possible to move missed sessions. 

If your child is going to miss a session please let us know, if a child misses 3 consecutive sessions without letting us know SNIPS may tell us to end your service and offer the place to a child on the waiting list. 

If have any questions or comments please get in touch, our Short Breaks Co-ordinator is April and can be contacted during sessions by phone 0114 2395739, text 07784838169 or email aprilmurray@maskk.org.uk 

Outside of sessions times please note April works limited hours and so email is the best way to get in touch and she’ll get back to you as soon as she can. Alternatively Craig can help during the week using the numbers above or email craigjudson@maskk.org.uk
