Short breaks and respite support for disabled children and young people

Often referred to as “respite” short breaks provide opportunities for disabled children and young people 0 – 18 to have enjoyable experiences away from their primary carers, contributing to their social inclusion and personal and social development. They also provide the parents and carers of disabled children and young people with a necessary and valuable break from their caring responsibilities.

The children’s disability service have commissioned a range of short break activities during the Easter holiday. Details of the activities and information about how to book.
