Short Breaks is a new term that was introduced by the government to replace the term respite care. Short breaks are a way of giving parents of disabled children a break from their caring responsibilities. Short Breaks also benefit the disabled child or young person, helping them to play with friends, keep fit, improve their communication skills, gain independence or simply have fun.
Local Authorities are required to publish information on what Short Breaks are available in their area and how to access them. See here for details.
