Short Breaks

Our short break services are renowned for innovation. The young people experience a fun time away from their families in a safe, secure environment while their parents and siblings enjoy a break from what can be a stressful situation.


In partnership with local authorities, our service provides two short-break homes for disabled young people in Norfolk and Suffolk, where children aged five to 18 have regular, planned stays. One of our projects also provides term time, weekday boarding for six young people who attend the local special school. More than 70 young people receive short breaks on a regular basis.

Our disability services are rated by Ofsted as Good.
