Targeted Short Breaks/Leisure Activities for children and young people with disabilities – survey for parents/carers
8th July 2021
Targeted short breaks are organised leisure activities designed specifically for children and young people with disabilities providing opportunities for enjoyable life enhancing experiences without their primary carers, which contribute to their social inclusion, personal and social development. In addition, short breaks enable parents and carers to have a break and be able to do other things. Your child does not have to have had a social care assessment to attend targeted short breaks. Solihull Council currently commissions SoLO (Social Life Opportunities) to provide targeted short breaks at a subsidised rate. The Council is currently reviewing their short breaks offer for children and young people with disabilities, and want to ensure that the activities that are available meet the needs of families in Solihull. We are therefore asking parents/carers to complete this survey https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/5UGTEL/
The survey will close on the 5th August, all responses are anonymous and your views will help inform what services are available in the future. Findings of the survey will be published on the Local Offer in the autumn. If there is anything else you would like to say about Short Breaks in Solihull that isn’t covered in the survey please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
