Short Breaks news      Happy                  

Short Breaks are delighted to announce the arrival of Prepaid cards!

All families that opt for an Individual Budget (IB) will receive their funding on a Prepaid card from October 2017 onwards. The card allows you to;

  • pay for services for your child or young person
  • It will help you to keep track of your budget and spending
  • easily shows us how you spend your short breaks money (no receipts!)
  • You’ll have access to a customer service team and an online cardholder portal

As soon as you submit your receipts from the summer period you will be issued with a card and info pack on how to activate and use it.

If you would like to discuss anything regarding your receipts or returning them, please get in touch so that we can help you.  Phone 020 8356 6796 Email short.breaks@hackney.gov.uk

Kind Regards
