Posted by

With half term coming and parents already starting to make plans in advance for the long summer break we thought it would be a good time to publish a link to the latest short breaks summary for Greenwich.

Short Breaks in Royal Greenwich-3

Short breaks provide opportunities for disabled children and young people to spend time away from their families. These breaks are designed to give parents and carers a break. They also give children opportunities to try new activities, make friends and have fun.

A short break could be for a few hours, an evening, overnight or over a weekend. It could include a local club such as Scouts, Brownies or a local sports club. Short breaks can also take place at home, in a paid carer’s home, in the community or in a residential setting.

To access most short breaks, you won’t need an assessment. However there are some specialist short breaks where a social care assessment needs to be made first. Get in touch with the Children With Disabilities team at the council for more information on this. Phone 020 8921 2599 or email
