Short Breaks and Respite

Short breaks provide invaluable support for disabled children, young people and their families. While children are given opportunities to become more independent, have fun, enjoy new experiences, form friendships with their peers; their families are able to take time out of their caring role.

This can include daytime, evening, weekend and overnight activities such as buddying, outreach and groups. They can take place in the child's own home, a family based setting, a residential, educational or community setting, or in their local environment.
