A Short Break can range from an activity which lasts an hour or two through to a few days away from home, and includes day, evening, overnight, weekend and holiday activities. These activities provide a positive experience for the child as well as giving parents and carers a break from their caring duties.

Manchester City Council provides a range of Short Break services for disabled children and young people with Special Educational Needs, rare disorders and chronic medical conditions age 0 – 17 years, inclusive.

You can learn more about Short Breaks and the Specialist Resource Team at https://hsm.manchester.gov.uk/kb5/manchester/directory/advice.page?id=EJP15IZ5AFs
