Short Breaks Services Update: 02

Short Breaks User Engagement Report

We have recently received the final Short Break User Engagement Report. This was prepared by Autism Bedfordshire and the Bedford and District Cerebral Palsy Society. It will further inform us of the views of children, young people and families confirm what short break services they currently benefit from and what they would like for future service development.  We will be carefully considering the findings from this report and mapping any identified need against existing short break services.  This will assist in the development and commissioning of future short break services within Bedford Borough. It will also enable us to continue supporting families with children with disabilities. This will also enable children and young people with disabilities to benefit from new interests, establish friendships and try new activities.

The executive summary of the Short Breaks User Engagement Report is available at: www.bedford.gov.uk/sb-userengagementreport

We are pleased to have been able to consult with children and young people with disabilities and their families as part of this process, and are looking into ways of continuing to involve them in the ongoing development of short breaks services.  In addition we are keen to promote awareness around organisations such as the Short Breaks Network and the National Network of Parent Carer Forums. These provide valuable information on short break services to both families and short break providers alike.
