Schools, education and childcare Short breaks for carers of disabled children

A short break can range from an activity which lasts one or two hours, or a few days away from home. It includes day, evening, overnight, weekend and holiday activities. These activities provide a positive experience for the child as well as giving parents and carers a break from their caring duties.

We have a range of short breaks including sports, art, drama, playschemes, befriending and sitting in your own home.  

There are breaks suitable for all ages and a range of disabilities. The Specialist Resource team can advise you on short breaks that meet the needs of your family. Call 0161 219 2125 for more information.
