Hop Skip and Jump provide flexible and immediate respite care for children and young adults in the south west. We have three centres (Bristol, Cheltenham and Swindon) open seven days a week, providing a variety of indoor and outdoor activities to engage and inspire children with disabilities and special educational needs.
Children and adult users experience a sense of space and freedom within a safe, supervised environment where they are actively encouraged to take part in activities that build self-confidence, social skills and self-esteem. The high quality care provides parents and carers with some much needed time off to rest, spend time with their other children, or simply go for a coffee with friends.
There are no waiting lists for respite care at HS&J – it’s a flexible system where you can drop in for just an hour or for a whole day if that’s what you need. Experienced staff members work closely with parents, care workers and local authorities to ensure that every parent receives the full range of support services to which they are entitled.
HS&J’s simple vision is to prevent family collapse, to encourage and promote the development of children with disabilities and special needs, and, most importantly, to provide the highest quality respite care for those who need it most. Contact Your Local Centre Now: Bristol Cheltenham Swindon

Hop Skip and Jump for Teens and Twenties
At Hop Skip and Jump, we recognise that the transition from childhood to adulthood can be a difficult one and that support is not always there. That's why we have created programmes to develop life skills and run Teens and Twenties Clubs to provide a social environment for our young adults.
"Hop Skip and Jump is a huge support to us as a family. It allows me to have a break from caring for my son who has autism and challenging behaviour. It gives me great peace of mind knowing he is being cared for in a safe, secure environment with qualified and caring staff. Having some time out to spend with his siblings is very important and would not be possible without a place such as this."
