Short breaks Survey – please take part

Coventry, Solihull and Warwickshire are working together to provide parents, carers, children and young people with a range of short breaks which meet assessed and identified needs. Please see the link below for a survey – your comments and views are important to us and we need your help to shape services for the future.

What do we mean by a ‘short break’?
A short break provides opportunities for disabled children and young people to have enjoyable experiences away from their primary carers. This helps with personal and social development and supports social inclusion. At the same time a break provides parents and carers of disabled children with a necessary and valuable break from their caring responsibilities.

Short breaks can include day, evening, overnight, weekend or holiday activities. They can take place in the family home, in the home of an approved carer or in a residential or community setting.
Disclaimer: Some, but not all, specialist service provision requires families to meet specific criteria in order to access the provision.

Please submit your response by January 6th 2013 by clicking here: www.coventry.gov.uk/shortbreakssurvey

Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this survey.
