Short Breaks

Short Breaks are how local authorities perform their duty in the Children's Act 1989 to..."provide, as part of the range of services they provide for families, breaks from caring for carers of disabled children to support them to continue to care for their children at home and to allow them to do so more effectively"

Short Break allows a disabled young person to have an enjoyable break away from their main carer and gives their carer a break from their caring responsibilities.

Find out more about Short Breaks and who to contact in Hackney on their standalone website: www.shortbreakshackney.com
