Our vision in North East Lincolnshire is to provide disabled children and young people, with opportunities and experiences that help achieve positive outcomes for them.
By providing disabled children and young people with such opportunities, it is our aim to support parents in their role as primary carers and give them breaks to assist them to look after themselves and their wider family.
We aim to ensure that families of disabled children have the support they need to live ‘ordinary lives’ as a matter of course.
It is our aim that short breaks will contribute to keeping disabled children safe and healthy, enabling them to enjoy new activities, make friends, and have new learning opportunities, as well as preparing teenagers for adulthood.
Not all families need the same level of support to use these. The levels of short breaks are described below.
