Buckinghamshire County Council have launched a Children and Adult Short Breaks policy consultation and would like to know what you think of their strategy for each Short Break service.

Short Breaks Service for Adults

Short breaks are for people who are normally cared for in their own home by a family member or friend who is not paid for their caring tasks. For adults they help create independence and allow them to learn new skills.

From previous discussions with service users and their families we know many of you think that we need to change how we approach short breaks. This includes making sure access to short breaks is fair and that services can meet both current and future need.

Closing date: Monday 14th January 2019
