Short breaks for children and young people with disabilities, and their families

Most families spend time together but often children and parents like to have some time to themselves to do the things they want to do.

For some families it is not that easy. Their children and young people may need someone with them all the time and parents may feel they can never have a break.

The child or young person may not be able to spend the time away from parents that can help most young people to become more independent.

South Tyneside short break service for disabled children aims to help children, young people and their families to have the sort of short breaks that other families may take for granted.
