Short breaks

Short breaks could include childcare, a Saturday or after school club, a residential holiday for you and your family, or a holiday scheme.

Depending on the type of short break you are looking for, these can offer a chance for the family to enjoy some fun time together, an opportunity for your child with SEND to learn new skills and activities in a different environment, or an opportunity for you to unwind or carry out some important tasks on your own for a short time.

Your SENDIAS team can give you more information about the short breaks available within your area, whether you might be eligible for a short break, whether you will need an assessment, and how to apply.
