Our aim is to ensure that families with disabled children have the support they need to live ordinary lives as a matter of course.
We have commissioned a variety of organisations to provide short breaks for disabled children and their families.
- Disabled children and young people with an opportunity to spend time away from their parents, relaxing and having fun with their friends.
- Families with a 'break' from their caring responsibilities; they give families a chance to unwind, rest or spend time with their other children.
We are committed to:
- ensuring that we listen to all disabled children, act on their views and provide them with choices.
- ensuring all disabled children and their families are supported to take part in and enjoy local community life, wherever possible using local childcare facilities, leisure and recreational activities.
- ensuring that parents and carers are supported to become equal partners in making decisions about service developments and priorities.
