Lancashire Break Time

Update on Lancashire Break Time 2020

Following the consultation responses on our proposal to cease 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 take place across Lancashire during term time and school holidays and will continue in their current form until the review of how short breaks are to be delivered is completed.

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. 

Activities

Please note, due to Covid-19, not all our providers are open at the moment. The number of sessions available and the session length may be limited in order to allow more children to attend.

Face to face sessions are listed by district, followed by online sessions.

For more details and to book a place, please contact the provider direct.
