Poole Shared Care Scheme For Children
The Shared Care Scheme provides short breaks for children with disabilities and respite for parents, by linking them with a local shared carer who can care for children on a regular basis in the carer’s home.
Valuable support and friendships are also discovered by everyone taking part.
The Scheme currently has over twenty trained and approved carers, linked with more than thirty children. The children benefit by developing new interests, experiences and independence skills. Both Daycare and Overnight care available.
Children are referred following social work assessment by the Child Health and Disability team.
