Break Time short break activities

Registration closed

The launch of Break Time will commence from 1 April 2022.

As part of this new service we have designed a registration process.

This process will enable you to register your child each year so that, if they are eligible, they can then access the activities.

The registration process is now closed for this year.

As this is a new service we would very much appreciate your feedback by email to: cyp-shortbreaks@lancashire.gov.uk

1. Overview

Break Time will replace the current Lancashire Break Time service from 1 April 2022. 

Break Time short break activities provide a range of activities and groups for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities who meet the criteria to attend and who do not receive short breaks following a social care assessment of need.

Please check your child meets the criteria before you register.

Each eligible child or young person can access up to 78 hours of Break Time activities and groups each year which can be used between one or two Break Time providers.

There will be a minimum contribution from parents and carers towards Break Time activities and groups of £2 per hour. This is in addition to any specific costs for activities, entrance fees or transport costs to activities 

More information about the providers who will be running Break Time groups and activities will be provided here when available. You'll be able to book in with your chosen provider or providers in March 2022.
