Short breaks for disabled children
Every disabled child or young person in Liverpool has the right to inclusive short breaks. We aim to tailor the breaks to meet a child or young person’s assessed needs.
Who can apply?
A child, young person, family or professional can request a short break.
How to apply?
To request a short break call Fusion Short Breaks on 0151 233 3620 or 0151 233 3621 during office hours, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What type of break?
We offer a variety of breaks, and a range of services and support packages which help to facilitate breaks. These include:
- friendship groups
- direct payments
- accredited volunteer training
- support to access childcare and integrated play and youth services
- Ofsted registered short break sessions at Croxteth Children's Centre
Where the needs of a child or young person are significant and require intensive or statutory intervention, specialist and targeted services may be offered.
In this case, a full social care assessment will be undertaken to ensure a child or young person’s needs are being met.
