Short breaks


New Short Breaks offer – activities and support for disabled children and young people in Greenwich 
Short Breaks are pleased to announce their updated offer for disabled children and young people, available from April. Short Breaks are a fantastic experience for children and young people with disabilities in Greenwich to meet new friends, take part in exciting activities and have fun!

From 1st April 2021, we will have 8 organisations running a variety of services across the borough. All our programmes will be putting measures in place to ensure the safety of your child during COVID-19, including social distancing, reduced group numbers and PPE where required.
The service is available to any one aged 4-17 who lives in Greenwich and has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). The programmes are designed to encourage friendships, independence and learning new skills, as well as allowing parents and carers a short break from their caring role.

Activities will be taking place throughout the summer and vary across each organisation. The only cost to families is the access fee charged by each Short Breaks provider, which ranges from £1.70 - £5 per hour (depending on the level of support that they require).

If you are interested in registering for Short Breaks please contact the team by emailing or calling 0208 921 3002.

More information can be found in the Greenwich Short Breaks Guide, as well as by visiting the Greenwich Local Offer page.
