Holiday destinations often restrict what the young people can do, which is especially difficult for SEN school holiday planning.
For teachers and staff, it can become a nightmare of concerns and worries, about the venue itself and the safety of the pupils.
For youth groups the need for local safety can be an even bigger concern and public places can be a real worry.
