The service currently works with around 60 young people and their families. The service operates a rolling calendar, so that groups of children access short breaks throughout the year to support their families to care for them. The service is very good at working with young people, and sticking with them.
The service works closely with the Disabled Childrens Social Work Team and partners in health and education to provide a sustainable and flexible service for children and their families.
The staff team provide a quality service and Ofsted have recognised this with an "Outstanding" grading two out of the last four years. The team have achieved this through their hardwork, committment and implementing their array of skills and qualities.
Feedback forms from families are completed regularly and are very positive about the impact of the service for themselves and their children.
