New short breaks announced
RBG announces the new short breaks offer for families and young people:
"The term “short breaks” refers to services that help parents/carers to more effectively provide care for their disabled children, by providing them regular breaks so that they can meet the needs of other children in the family; study or take part in leisure activities themselves; or carry out day to day household tasks. We also want short breaks to help make sure young people access positive activities.
Royal Greenwich has a duty to provide access to short break services for parent/carers of all disabled children aged 0-19 in Royal Greenwich (or up to 25, where part of a support plan). This new brochure explains:
- The range of targeted and specialist services on offer in Royal Greenwich
- Who is eligible for services
- How to access services
- How we develop short breaks
- How you can shape short breaks
Taster Sessions - try the new short breaks in April!
In an effort to help you become familiar with our new providers, we are planning a ‘Short Break Taster’ month in April. This will be a fun opportunity for you to get to know our providers and begin to try out our new provision.
All our commissioned providers are putting on ‘taster’ sessions over the Easter Holiday of their on-going provision to help you and your child get to know the provision and help inform your choices as to who you will wish to access going forward.
Please contact providers (details in brochure) for more information about taster sessions happening in Easter 2019.
