Short Breaks give children and young people a chance to spread their wings, whilst helping ease the load on parents and guardians. We offer the opportunity for children and young people to dive into new interests and nurture their independence through tailored support to fit the unique needs of each young person and family.

Our short, activity-packed breaks are carefully designed with input from families, ensuring that every child and young person’s unique needs are met. They help individuals develop essential life skills, fostering greater self-reliance. And they’re a gateway to fresh experiences, new friendships, and vibrant memories.
A Kids professional can take your child out for some fun— whether it’s a trip to the cinema, bowling alley, or a splash at the local swimming pool. They have a joyful experience and it gives you as a family a break from caregiving duties. Or, if you prefer, a Kids worker can provide care right in the comfort of your own home, allowing the rest of the family to venture out and enjoy some quality time. And for shared memories if the whole family’s out for the day, a Kids worker can come along to make sure everyone has an amazing time.
Our team is made up of skilled professionals, from buddies and key workers to mentors, support workers, and specialised caregivers. Their expertise ensures that everyone’s needs are met with care and precision.
We’re fully registered with OFSTED and CQC, and we strictly adhere to all relevant guidelines, ensuring a safe and trustworthy environment for all.
