Lincolnshire County Council Short Breaks Team
The Short Breaks Team are a service within Children's Services that plan and develop, in consultation with young people and their families, the Short Break Activities in Lincolnshire including Short Break subsidised holidays for families to have a break together.
Whilst the primary role is the care of children enjoying short breaks away from their families; care staff, area colleagues, schools and other agencies work together to maximise the benefits and opportunities of children and their families.
The short breaks services have been designed to enable children, young people and their families to enjoy breaks together, as well as enabling young people to enjoy activities independently in their community.
Short breaks come in a variety of formats and each one can last from just a few hours to a few days depending on the type of provision and the needs of the child or young person.
This wider Short Breaks agenda aims to reach families before, or in the place of, feeling the need to ask for an Assessment of Need from Short Breaks Social Care.
Short Breaks tackles isolation, provides access to leisure facilities, develops friendship networks, promotes personal development and promotes happiness and well-being for the child, young person and their family.
There is a wide variety of support that families can self-access – clubs, activities, subsidised holidays, counselling support, specialist nurse trainers and regular newsletters which can be found in 'Short Breaks' in the Play and Leisure and Social Care categories of the Local Offer.
