Short Breaks Directory

What is a short break?
Short breaks provide fun, leisure and social activities for disabled children and young people outside the school day. This enables them to try new experiences, both with and away from their siblings and parents or carers, giving them the opportunity to learn new skills, develop their confidence and have fun!
Short breaks also give parents and carers a break from their caring role, giving them a chance to rest, catch up on day-to-day activities and spend time with other family members. Short breaks services are available for children and young people, from 0 to 18 years, who live in West Sussex and have a disability and/ or additional need.
All local authorities have to provide a range of short breaks for families. Short breaks cover a wide range of activities and within this directory West Sussex have tried to provide sufficient information to help you make choices about the many activities available in West Sussex. We encourage you to contact short breaks providers directly to find out more information and to discuss any specific needs you may have.
