How does the service work?

Northamptonshire KIDS workers take the child or young person out into a community setting, such as to the cinema, bowling or to the local swimming pool. This enables them to have a positive experience whilst giving their families a break from their caring responsibilities. Alternatively, a KIDS worker can care for the child or young person in their own home while the rest of the family go out, or accompany a family on an outing supporting all members of the family to have an enjoyable shared experience.

Who is the service for?
