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 4 to 18 years and living in Lancashire (excluding Blackburn with Darwen and Blackpool). The child or young person will find it difficult to access universal services due to sensory issues, learning difficulties, physical mobility problems, etc. They will not be in receipt of an assessed social care outreach package; those with a higher level of need will receive services through their package of care.

 Lancashire Break Time activities will be delivered across Lancashire during term time and school holidays until 31st March 2019. Provision from April 2019 onwards will be confirmed in early 2019.

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 should contact the provider direct for more information and to reserve a place.
