Redbridge has a Framework of three providers:
- Core Children's Services
- Shared Care Services
These providers offer children and young people with disabilities/complex health needs with a short break at an OfSTED registered Foster Carers' home.
The purpose of the service is to replicate the 'out of family' experiences of those who do not have disabilities and commonly stay with extended family, friends and relatives. As such, it aims to be a positive, stimulating and worthwhile experience for children and young people in a safe and appropriate home environment with age appropriate activities, outings and positive interactions; as well as a short break for the child or young person's parents and carers.
This service is commissioned by Redbridge Children's Services.
