Halton Short Breaks

What are Short Breaks?

Local Authorities have a duty to provide short breaks for carers of disabled children to enable them to continue to care for their disabled child and to participate in everyday activities.

These services are available in the evenings, at weekends and during school holidays:

  • Day time care in the homes of disabled children or elsewhere;
  • Overnight care in the homes of disabled children or elsewhere;
  • Educational or recreational activities for disabled children outside their homes.
