Bexley Local Offer

Short Breaks Service

Disabled children can be referred to Falconwood for overnight short breaks if they meet the criteria for this service. An assessment can also be made for direct payments or agency support provided by a Carer.

Our aim is to ensure that families with disabled children have the support they need to ‘live ordinary family lives as a matter of course’. Families will be offered a choice of short breaks wherever possible, to make sure that their child’s needs, and those of their family, are met.

We are committed to ensuring that:

We listen to all disabled children, act on their views, and provide them with choices.

All disabled children and their families are supported to take part in and enjoy local community life wherever possible, using local childcare facilities, leisure and recreational activities.

Parents and carers are supported to become equal partners in making decisions about service development and priorities, so we work together to ‘get better’.
