Update on Lancashire Break Time 2020

The consultation responses on our proposal to cease Lancashire Break Time indicated that we need to look at the whole Short Breaks Offer provided by Lancashire County Council alongside Lancashire Break Time. As a result, on 8 August 2019 Cabinet agreed to the review and redesign the whole Short Breaks Offer, in partnership with parents, carers, young people and providers.

Thanks to the parent/carers, children, young people and short breaks providers who have shared their views on the Short Breaks Offer so far.

Lancashire Break Time will continue in its current form until the review and redesign of the Short Breaks Offer is completed.

The feedback has been used to inform a report setting out the proposal for the future delivery of short breaks which was agreed by cabinet on 12 March 2020. Cabinet also agreed that a consultation is undertaken on the proposed changes.
