Short breaks for children with disabilities grant applications

by Laura Johnston

We’re inviting applications for the latest round of short breaks grants.

The grants provide financial support for groups in the local community and voluntary sector, enabling them to develop activities and support for children with disabilities, their families and carers.

Short breaks activities give children and young people with a disability an opportunity to join in with fun activities in the community, as well as giving parents or carers a break from their caring role.

If you would like to know more or to apply for a short breaks grant, please visit the council’s website where you can find the eligibility criteria, guidance notes and application form. The closing date for the spring 2018 round of applications is Friday 15 June 2018.
