About the Organisation

Short breaks provide invaluable support for disabled children, young people and their families. It provides disabled children and young people with the opportunity to experience new relationships, environments and positive activities which provides them with valuable social skills and independence. Families are able to take time out to recharge their batteries or provide additional support so that the whole family can enjoy activities together.

There are many forms that short breaks can take, including daytime, evening, weekend and overnight activities.

For more information please look at our website or contact Kay Sibley for more information (details above).
