Break Time

Break Time short break activities provide a range of activities and groups for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities who meet the criteria to attend and who do not receive short breaks following a social care assessment of need.

Please check your child meets the criteria before you register. Each eligible child or young person can access up to 78 hours of Break Time activities and groups each year which can be used between one or two Break Time providers. There will be a minimum contribution from parents and carers towards Break Time activities and groups of £2 per hour. This is in addition to any specific costs for activities, entrance fees or transport costs to activities.

If you are registered with Break Time, the cost is £12 per day. Registration for Break Time activities will be open from October 23 to December 21. Both new and existing members must register to access the service from April 2024.

Registration and further information can be found on the Break Time short activities page.
