Our short break service sounds like a holiday! Previously known as respite care, short breaks are offered to give your child some quality time out, usually on fun activities, with our support staff, giving you a well deserved rest from your caring responsibilities. This can be an evening or 2 through the week or a few hours each weekend, whatever you need to recharge and your child to enjoy.
We support children with learning & physical disabilities and those who are on the Autistic Spectrum. We are regulated by the Care Quality Commission to provide personal care should your child need any help with this. We match our support workers closely with the needs of your child right from the start, so that you can be confident your child is with someone who, primarily, understands them and can connect with them in a wholesome way.
When did you last feel relaxed or have a night out?
As a parent, it can be difficult to find someone who you trust, particularly if your child has disabilities.
Back-Up Buddies at Home
Our staff will come to your home and stay with your child giving you time to take a well earned break. This service gives you the peace of mind you need to let your hair down and enjoy yourself in the knowledge that your child is being properly cared for.
Could you do with an extra pair of hands?
Having a child with a disability can make normal day to day activities increasingly difficult, particularly if you have more than one child. Perhaps your’e a single parent and don’t have a family support unit, could you do with some help?
