Short breaks and time out for carers

Short breaks for disabled adults

We can offer short residential breaks – or 'respite' stays – for adults aged from 18 years-old to 65 years-old who have a learning disability or physical disability, and who currently live with family or carers.

The place where you can take your break will depend on the needs of the person being cared for.
