A short break gives children and young people who have a disability the opportunity to join in with an enjoyable activity away from their parents/ carers. Short breaks allow children and young people to take part in activities, make friends, develop independence skills and have fun. Short breaks also provide parents / carers a break from caring responsibilities.
Take a Break Warwickshire provides community based short breaks for children and young adults who have a disability or life threatening illness, and adults with a learning disability. This support enables people to live their lives to their full potential, gain skills and move towards independence with confidence.
Take a Break provides a wide variety of group activities across Warwickshire and Coventry. Their groups provide safe places for children and young people to socialise away from school, build on their confidence and independence and most importantly have fun!
Activities include Saturday clubs, holiday play schemes, a youth group in Rugby and an after school club in Nuneaton.
A service coordinator will talk with you about what you are looking for, and will then arrange a home visit to discuss your child or young person's needs in more detail. They will talk about the support they can provide and the cost in more detail.
