Short break services for disabled children

Disabled children and young people want to enjoy a range of activities with their friends and families.

We have a duty to provide short break services. For more information speak to someone who is already involved with your child like a therapist, special educational needs coordinator, nurse or social care worker.

We'll discuss with you the type of short break that will best meet your child's needs and agree how it will be provided - this is called an assessment.

If you do not receive a service at the moment you can contact Call Derbyshire tel: 01629 533190.

The Derbyshire Local Offer provides a range of information about activities and clubs that are accessible to disabled young people (opens in a new window)

What if I need more support?

There are different levels of support as families needs change. We can provide short break services to children and young people who have complex needs, including overnight stays. This would follow a comprehensive assessment.
