Short breaks for disabled children

What are short breaks?

Short breaks are activities for children and young people, usually away from home, that enable them to have fun and time with their peers, while at the same time giving a break to parents from their caring role.

Short breaks can be for the whole family together as well as for children and young people away from their family carers and range from a few hours’ of activities to longer times. They aim to enable disabled children to have opportunities to meet other children and to have fun, and to take part in everyday activities. They also aim to enable parents, carers and siblings to have some time free from their caring responsibilities.
