Often referred to as “respite” short breaks provide opportunities for disabled children and young people 0 to 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.

If you have any questions, please email Shortbreaks@bcfforum.org and a member of the team will be in touch.

Short breaks program - BCFForum

BCFForum and London Borough of Bromley Children’s Disabilities Shortbreaks Team are excited to offer a range of enrichment activities each holiday.

Holiday, activities and food programme

Our holiday, activities and food programme returns from 19 December 2023 to 5 January 2024 providing 10 days of activities and holiday club places for eligible children across the Christmas half term.

Our Holiday Activities and Food Programme (HAF) allows children and young people, aged between 5 to 16 years old, to enjoy fun and enriching activities outside of term time that will enable them to develop new skills, build confidence and meet new friends.

Each session will allow your child to take part in some form of physical activity as well as creative and educational tasks. They will also learn about the nutritional aspect of the food they eat, whilst enjoying a free nutritious meal each day.
