Short Breaks


Manchester City Council provides a range of Short Breaks services (click for link) for disabled children and young people with Special Educational Needs, rare disorders and chronic medical conditions age 0 – 17 years inclusive.

What is a short break?
A short break can range from an activity which lasts an hour or two through to a few days away from home, and includes day, evening, overnight, weekend and holiday activities. These activities provide a positive experience for the child as well as giving parents and carers a break from their caring duties.


How do I apply?

You can call into a ‘Local Offer Drop In’ in your area or call 0161 234 5001 or email to request a short break check.
