Short Breaks

Seabreeze provides Short Breaks for Young People aged 8+

What are Short Breaks

Short Breaks are activities for children and young people aged 5-17 with disabilities commissioned by Norfolk County Council.

Short Breaks come in a range of shapes and sizes. They can be activities that are available to everyone or activities with trained staff and specialist equipment. They can take place in the family home, at a centre or in the community. Short Breaks take place outside of school hours during evenings, weekends, school holidays and sometimes overnight.

What type of activity you might be able to get will depend on your child’s and family’s needs and preferences.

A Short Break should be a positive experience for everyone. It gives children and young people the chance to spend time away from their parents/carers, letting them take part in new activities, make friends, learn new skills, become more independent and have fun. At the same time, parents/carers can have a break.

You may also be offered direct payments which give more options for using your Short Breaks funding.
