Please note:

These breaks are in addition to the "Aiming High" Short Break offer which is explained on other pages in this section.

The short break support package offered will have been assessed by a social worker. Short breaks offered might include specialist sessions for children and young people with more complex needs and can include both day and overnight provision.
