What are short breaks?
The national statutory guidance requires local authorities to provide short breaks that give parent carers a break from their caring responsibilities. The statutory guidance that all local authorities have to work to is entitled ‘short breaks for carers of disabled children’ which we have included as a link below
Short breaks can last from just a few hours to a few days – from daytime and evening activities to weekend and overnight or maybe longer. They provide disabled children and young people with:
– positive and safe things to do and places to go
– the opportunity to spend time with friends, to develop personally and socially, and reduce isolation
– the chance to undertake new activities and have new experiences
