Does your disabled child / young person need help to access social opportunities and leisure activities in a safe and appropriate way?
If yes, you may be eligible for Short Breaks.

Short Breaks are provided for families with children with a permanent and substantial impairment or illness, which has a profound effect on their health, development and social functioning. They are provided for families that are unable to access universal activities, services and provision without additional support.
Short Breaks can be for a few hours or longer, in some circumstances overnight and can be provided in lots of different ways. A Short Break could include additional support so that a child or young person can join a club or recreational activity in their community, someone caring for a child in their own home or within the child’s home or it could be extra support for the disabled child to join in family leisure and social activities.
If you have any queries regarding Short Breaks or would like help completing the Short Breaks application form please contact the Short Breaks Team on email@example.com or telephone 01904 552420.
