Norfolk County Council Short Breaks

Norfolk Council Website link to Short Break Services

Short break services give disabled children and young people an opportunity to meet new people and enjoy different experiences.

Short breaks come in all shapes and sizes and give disabled children and their families a break from their caring responsibilities.

A short break could last a few hours, a day, evening, overnight or for a weekend. They could take place in or away from the home.

They can involve supporting families to take a short break together away from the routine of daily life or can be a break for the child away from the family.
