Short breaks are among the most fundamental services for supporting the health and well-being for families with disabled children. They give families a break from caring for a disabled child, while also offering a chance for children to do activities they enjoy.They hold families together and can prevent them from reaching crisis.
Despite this, many of these services are under threat.
Add your name to our petition calling on the Government to review the funding and availability of short breaks services.
