Break Time short break activities

Break Time registrations

We are pleased to announce that registration for Break Time has been reopened again.

Families who missed the previous registration periods can now register.

6. If you need more than 78 hours short breaks

We've asked Break Time providers to have arrangements in place so parents and carers can pay for additional time at Break time activities and groups if they need them. Please speak directly to the provider about this.

You can also request a social care assessment of need. This is so we can fully understand the needs of the child or young person, parents and carers and family and identify the best way to meet any assessed needs.

Other short breaks, activities and groups for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities and their families

Break Time is part of a range of available activities and groups. The Lancashire SEND Directory lists more activities and groups provided or commissioned by Lancashire County Council as well as by other organisations and groups including sporting, voluntary and charity organisations and parent carer groups.

Some of these groups and activities will offer a short break to parents and carers, children and young people. Some are activities families can do together and get involved in.

Some schools provide holiday and after school clubs which can provide short breaks. Please check your child or young person's school website or speak to the school about what they offer.
