Short Breaks for Children and Young People with Disabilities

Short breaks are designed to:

  • Provide enjoyable experiences for children and young people with a disability which are away from their primary carer, enable them to have fun and allow them to make friends and develop skills.
  • Give parents and families a necessary and valuable break from their caring responsibilities.
