Also provides respite care.

Offers a flexible and comprehensive range of services, including:

  • weekend breaks

These services are available over a 24 hour period, 7 days a week, with a skeleton service on bank holidays.

Aims to minimise stress within the family and help to maintain a quality family life. We work closely with the professional therapists from the child development team.  Each child will have individual care plans drawn up in partnership with parents and therapists.​

Referrals are made by the community paediatrician.  The special needs social worker and the unit manager will meet with parents and allocate the respite according to individual assessed needs.  Assessment reviews will continue every 6 months.​
