Short Breaks aim to benefit children and young people with disabilities, complex health needs, and/or sensory impairments.

They can also be offered in various locations ranging from the family home, a carer’s home, a residential setting, or as part of a plan to offer specialist additional support by enabling access to a universal or specialist community facility or service.
