Short breaks

Southwark Council publishes a list of Short Breaks in the borough. You can download this from Short Breaks on Southwark Council’s website.

The full list of short break providers can be found on Southwark Council’s document above but here are some examples. Some of them will require referral from the Children With Disabilities team.

  • Salmon Youth Centre
  • Camden Society
  • Fast Forward
  • Resources for Autism
  • Tideaway Sailability
  • Charlie Chaplin Adventure Playground
  • Whippersnappers
  • Disability sports clubs
  • Orient Street — overnight respite
  • Family Link

From September 2014, Southwark Council will be under the obligation under the new Children & Families Act to publish its Local Offer on its website, which provides full details of services available to children and young people with disabilities. They are also planning to establish a Parents’ Centre or one-stop-shop for parent carers. Look out for updates here.
