Description

Service Description

Short breaks enable disabled children and young people to do many of the activities non-disabled children take for granted. They help them have fun, try new activities, gain independence and make friends.

Short breaks are one of the services most commonly requested by parents of disabled children. These services also offer parents and carers the much-needed break that they deserve from their usual caring responsibilities.

Additional Information

Additional Information

The Disability Living Allowance (DLA) is a non means tested welfare benefit for children under 16 with an illness or a disability who need help with getting around and/or help with personal care. Children who will turn 16 from 1 October 2013 will be invited to claim Personal Independence Payments, which will gradually replace DLA for adults and young people over 16.
