Short Breaks

Nottinghamshire County Council supports the idea that children and young people with disabilities should be included in universal settings.

For example, families of disabled children under 5 years will be directed to access their local Children’s Centre for socialisation and play opportunities like any other family. 

Short breaks are for those children and young people with disabilities, between 5-18 years of age, unable to access general settings. A short break is intended to give the carer a break from caring and to give the child/young person opportunities to try new or different things. 

More information about Short Breaks, and how to get one, can be found on Nottinghamshire’s Local Offer : Local Offer- Short Breaks
