Respite Care describes separate periods of care if you, or your carer, need to have a short-term break. Respite Care is provided at home, at the time of your choice. The breaks are only short-term and do not usually last for longer than three months of continuous care. Respite Care can be also provided in a emergency such as illness to support you to manage independently.
We understand the importance of keeping children safe and have in place clear safeguarding procedures in line with current legislation. You can rest assured all staff are fully trained and DBS vetted to ensure the safety of the children supported.
Each child or young person is introduced to their prospective support worker and with their family selects their own care team.
