Community Learning Disability Service
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.
This is a community based specialist service working with young people aged from 18 years and adults who have learning disabilities. Their service provision includes community nurses, Occupational Therapists, psychological therapists (psychologists, art therapist), psychiatrists, physiotherapists, social workers and Speech and Language Therapists.
