Children with disabilities can have subsidised places on multi-sport respite camps in the Easter holidays.
The four-day courses are being run by Norwich City Football Club and Football in the Community through their Aviva Ability Counts coaching team.
Parents and carers whose children attend the course can have a break while the children enjoy football, basketball, tennis, tri-golf, hockey and other sports.
The course, which would normally cost around �80, has been 75pc funded by Short Breaks Pathfinder so parents or carers need only pay �20 for the four-day course.
The sports sessions will be delivered by qualified Football in the Community coaches who have experience in working with children with disabilities. Individual care will be provided by Cross Roads Care, an organisation which provides support for children with complex needs.
Darran Lovell, FITC development manager, said: "Following the success of our recent half-term respite courses, we are delighted to be able to offer four days of multi-sport coaching for children with disabilities across Norfolk. These courses are fully inclusive and we look forward to working with more children with learning, physical and complex needs."
