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

Housing benefit is a social security benefit that can help people on a low income with their rent. The amount of housing benefit awarded varies according to the income, savings, rent, family composition and personal circumstances of the claimant and anyone else living in his/her household. For further information please telephone the council’s Benefits Contact Centre on 020 7364 5001. To make a new claim for housing benefit, the applicant needs to complete a Tower Hamlets full claim form. To request a form:

• Telephone 020 7364 5001 or email the Benefits Service. If the claim form is completed and returned within one calendar month of the date it was requested then the date it was requested will be treated as the claim date.
