Short Breaks aim to benefit children and young people with disabilities, complex health needs, and/or sensory impairments.
Children and young people are offered experiences that foster and improve their individual and social development.
Short Breaks can occur at different times – during the day or evening; overnight or on weekends, and can span a few hours or a number of days. They can also be offered in various locations ranging from the family home, a carer’s home, a residential setting, or as part of a plan to offer specialist additional support by enabling access to a universal or specialist community facility or service. The type of service and the allocated time is dependent on the assessed need for the child and/or young person.
Information about Short Breaks in Northamptonshire is available via the document in the website link and the Local Offer.
