Short Breaks and Respite Support

What is A Short Break?

A short break is for adults and their families. It can range from an activity which lasts for a few hours to overnight stays of a number of days.

They can take place during the holidays, at weekends, during the day or overnight.

Short breaks can sometimes be referred to as ‘respite services’.

Tailored Breaks

The breaks can be tailored to include trips and activities that your loved one enjoys, creating lasting memories and providing a break from their daily routine.

Alternatively you may require assistance for a short period of time in your family home, or in the community, providing you with a much needed short break from your caring duties.

Please contact us about providing you with a carer, or two, for a break that fits in with your family’s needs. Let us support you in making a little time for yourself or other members of your family.

Our carers can assist with:

– Shopping
– Cooking
– Day trips e.g. to the beach, theme parks and other attractions.
– Activities including: cinema, concerts, meals out
– Relaxation – being available while your loved one watches a movie, listens to music, etc.

Care needs provided


You may be eligible for financial support funded by the local authority and qualify for a Direct Payment, where by you can choose to have the money paid to you for the break and use it to arrange and pay for your break. Please contact your local council about any self-directed support options.
