Lancashire Break Time

Short breaks give the primary carer of a child a break from their caring role whilst the child or young person attends a fun group activity. The break is for a period of at least two hours.

The criteria to qualify for Lancashire Break Time short breaks is to be the unpaid primary carer of a child or young person with special educational needs and/or disabilities, aged 0 to 18 years and with difficulty accessing universal services. The child/young person must live in Lancashire. Due to financial changes and low take up of pre-school places Lancashire Break Time for the time being will be delivered during term time and school holidays for ages 4 – 18. If there is capacity, extra sessions will be run during term time.

There is a minimum charge of £1 per hour for the activities.

If you think you meet the criteria and would like a short break, you need to contact the provider direct for more information and to reserve a place. 

Future of Lancashire Break Time activities

Lancashire Break Time activities will continue during school holidays across Lancashire. If there is capacity, providers will run extra sessions during term time.

We aim to co-produce with parent carers and young people a new way of delivering short breaks. We are planning events for parent carers to get involved in early 2018. Young people will have their say in these discussions through the POWAR Group.

From April 2018 activities will run in school holidays and if there is capacity, during term time. Schools and external providers under new contracts will deliver the sessions.
