Short Break Services

We provide a full range of short break services for children and young people aged 2-25 with complex and severe learning disabilities, including services which support children and young people on the edge of care.  Children and young people can access short breaks from one or two nights per week or for longer periods, depending upon their specific care needs. This includes the provision of short breaks throughout school and public holidays.

Our short break provision is fully adapted to meet the complex needs of the children and young people placed with us.  Each short breaks house accommodates a maximum of 4 children or young people per house.  All children and young people placed with us for short breaks have their own bedroom, a personalised care plan and share their communal living with others of their own age and interests.

Our short breaks provision includes access to a full range of recreational activities including arts and crafts, music, cooking, fabulous facilities for swimming, cycling, trampolining, outside gym and fully inclusive indoor fitness suite.  Our highly trained staff will be on-hand at all times and also accompany children and young people off site to visit local shops, the cinema, restaurants and other cultural and recreational venues.
