What are Short Breaks?
Our Short Breaks allow a disabled young person to have an enjoyable break away from their main carer and give their carer a break from their caring responsibilities.
Am I Eligible?
Short Breaks’ core offer is for young people who:
- Are 0-17 years old
- Live in Hackney permanently
- Receive Disability Living Allowance (DLA) at Middle or High Rate or Personal Independent Payment (PIP) at Intermediate or Advanced
