Service description:
Our service offers a residential respite facility for children with disabilities who have either a diagnosis of autism, complex health needs and/or complex behaviour. This is a specialist service covering the full age range up to 18 years and provides a structured environment and nursing care. It offers parents and carers the opportunity to ‘recharge their batteries’ in the knowledge that their child is in a safe, supportive and stimulating environment.

The John Greenwood Shipman (JGS) Centre is a 10-bed residential unit offering short breaks (respite care) to children with disabilities and complex health needs and/or complex behaviour.

Our service is accessed by the Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) Needs Panel. A child or young person’s case is presented by a social worker. Please talk directly to your social worker or contact the NCC referral team on 0300 126 1000 for further information.
