How the SEND Local Offer is developing

New Short Breaks project to be launched this summer 2023

The Short Breaks service has won £955,000 of funding from the Government's £30 million Short Breaks Innovation Fund set up as part of the national SEND improvement plan.

The project is for 14 to 18-year-olds with SEND with the most complex social and emotional behaviour. It will introduce new community-based provision for families struggling to manage their child's behaviour safely, including family coaching, psychological therapy, activities in the home, and community-based activities.

Three new Short Breaks navigator posts have been appointed to co-ordinate and help families navigate support for their child across health, social care, and education, improving the way professionals collaborate to achieve the best outcomes and support for a child.

The project will help us to increase support for families in their homes and communities at an earlier stage.
