Care Packages (Short Breaks)
Welcome to Care Packages section - also known as Short Breaks.
We have designed this section to enable you to access information on all Care Packages/Short Breaks available to Redbridge families, as well as information on services available to support your child to access mainstream activities.
To ensure you find the most suitable provision for your family, please ensure you read the guidance provided prior to accessing a care package and following some of the quick links to other areas of the site which may be relevant.
- An Introduction to Care Packages/Short Breaks
- Early Intervention for Disabled Children
- Applying for Care Packages/Short Breaks
- Childcare in the early years
We have also provided filters to enable you to 'shop' for the services you need, for example: filter by type of break, age, area, postcode, time of day and need(s) of the child or young person.
The new Short Breaks Providers Framework will start from November 2022. There will be a booklet produced shortly, with further information about the providers. Please visit the CWDT/Short Breaks (Care Packages) web pages regularly to find out more.
A letter was recently sent out to families with further information about the new framework starting in November 2022. The link to the letter can be found on the downloads section of this page.
