What is Short Breaks?
The term “short breaks” refers to services that help parents/carers to more effectively provide care for their disabled children by providing them regular breaks so that they can meet the needs of other children in the family; study or take part in leisure activities themselves; or carry out day to day household tasks. We also want short breaks to help make sure young people access positive activities. Royal Greenwich has a duty to provide access to short break services for parent/carers of all disabled children aged 0-19 in Royal Greenwich (or up to 25, where part of a support plan).
