Short breaks are part of a continuum of services which support children in need and their families. They include the provision of day, evening, overnight and weekend activities for the child or young person, and can take place in the child’s own home, the home of an approved carer, or in a residential or community setting.
This guidance applies to disabled children/young people 0-18 and their families. The breaks have two aims: to enable the child to participate in fun, interesting and safe activities; and to provide a break from caring for the parents.
Please see the links below for more information regarding short breaks. For more information please call 01952 387600 and ask for Kerry Gough.
