Short Breaks

Short breaks provide invaluable support for disabled children, young people and their families.  It provides disabled children and young people with the opportunity to experience new relationships, environments and positive activities which provides them with valuable social skills and independence. Families are able to take time out to recharge their batteries or provide additional support so that the whole family can enjoy activities together.

These breaks can take the form of:

  • Daytime care in the home or elsewhere

  • Overnight care in the home or elsewhere

  • Leisure activities outside the home

  • Services available to assist carers in the evenings, at weekends and during school holidays

    Short breaks come in many different forms and can last anything from a couple of hours to days.  The length and type of break will depend on your child, young person and family.

    To find out more about what is available and how to access short break services, please visit our Short Breaks page.
