Short Breaks Statement

Since 1 April 2011, there's been a duty on local authorities to provide breaks from caring for families of children with disabilities.

The Breaks for Carers of Disabled Children regulation requires us to publish a Short Breaks Statement for carers in the area so that families know:

  • The range of short breaks available.
  • How these services can be accessed.
  • How the services will meet the needs of families with children with disabilities.
  • The criteria for eligibility.

The underlying aims of the regulations are:

  • To provide opportunities for children with disabilities to enjoy themselves and fulfil their potential.
  • To enhance the abilities of carers to care more effectively.
