Review and redesign of Lancashire's Short Break Offer - Have your say!

Review and redesign of Lancashire's Short Break Offer for children and young people

Lancashire's Short Break Offer - Parent/Carer Consultation Summer 2020

The feedback received from parents, carers, short break providers and children and young people as part of the review and redesign of Lancashire's Short Break Offer has informed the design of the new proposed Short Break Offer. Responses received about the whole Short Break Offer demonstrated the diverse range of views and the challenge of providing short break services which meet everyone's needs. There was no consensus in the feedback about the priorities for the new Short Break Offer. The aim therefore is to ensure that the new Short Break Offer meets the needs of as many families as possible.

Feedback identified that Lancashire Break Time met the needs of many families but that families wanted choice, flexibility and a quality service.  It also identified that there were significant geographical differences in the choice and availability of activities and the number of hours accessed by children across Lancashire.

Who is this consultation for?

This consultation is for all parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) who are currently using Lancashire's Short Break Service, have used it in the past or who haven't used it before.
