Mako, Carers & Short Breaks

The Breaks for Carers of Disabled Children Regulations was implemented in April 2011 to ensure Local Authorities would properly offer, and advertise, respite opportunities for those caring for a disabled individual.

We understand that families of disabled children want to lead ordinary lives. Like many of us, they want to provide the best care and opportunities for their children to feel safe, and to be healthy and happy. To help families achieve this Short Breaks have created the “Halton Children, Young People and Families Plan” (a.k.a CYPFP) which has three main goals: 

1) Early Intervention, to ensure families get the right support at the right time. 

2) Achievement and Ambition, to help young people get the right education or training so they can succeed in life. 

3) Healthy & Safe, to keep young people feeling safe in their home, school, and community.
