Short Breaks-Coronavirus

Due to Government restrictions short breaks providers are operating at reduced capacity and we advise that you contact the short break provider directly to find out their current offers

Children who need to access short breaks through 1:1 support arranged by the 0-25 Disability Team or through their Direct Payments should contact the 0-25 Disability Team


Short Breaks give children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)the chance to spend time away from their families, gain independence, learn new skills and have fun with friends.

Short breaks also give parents and carers of children and young people with SEND, the chance to have a "break" from their caring responsibilities, to rest, spend time with their other children, or to enjoy a leisure activity themselves. 

The Wandsworth's Short Breaks offer is designed to give families of children with disabilities access to a range of different short breaks opportunities

Wherever possible we want families to be able to access their breaks without the need for further assessment.
