Bluebell House (Short Breaks Service) Greenwich
Bluebell House provides children and young people with complex health needs with short breaks.
The team understand that having a child with complex health needs can be very challenging and demanding at times, and recognise that parents and carers need a break from their caring role. Taking a break from caring does not mean you do not care. A break can allow you to catch up with family or friends, have a rest or do all the things you cannot do while you are caring for your child
Children also benefit from having a break from their parent/carer(s). This break can allow them to make new friends and experience new activities.
A short break provides your child with the opportunity to develop social skills and access local leisure facilities, defined and agreed by you.

Services available
Day care at weekends and during school holidays
After school club
Overnight stays
Home visiting service for children under five years old

How to access the service
Referrals are accepted from parents and carers, the child or young person and partnership agencies.
Once a referral is received an assessment will be completed and discussed at the care package panel in partnership with the Children with Disabilities Team. Parents, carers, families, children and young people are welcome to visit our centre and meet staff to learn more about services we can offer.
