Changes to council services

Short breaks respite care

The Short Breaks service will be cancelled until the end of June to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection in the service to customers, their families and staff.

Carers will be contacted on a weekly basis to be offered support and advice. Carers will also be offered access to additional support from home carers, access to carers’ grants and additional direct payments if relevant.

The Short Breaks service will continue to offer emergency support to customers and their families.
