Children's social care & and Family support services

Some families might believe that in order to meet their child's demands, they need a little additional assistance. In addition to supporting parents, we offer carers for children aged 0 to 18 years.

There are several family assistance programmes offered by us. Some are more geared towards fulfilling person-centred care, while others are for all parents, whether or not they have a kid with a disability. For families with disabled or special needs, we offer the following services:

  • Short break care
    Short break care (previously called respite care) gives young people an opportunity to have fun, share experiences and socialise outside of their home life.

  It also gives their parents or carers time to recharge their batteries.

            Our short break support includes:

  • overnight care for children in approved carers’ homes

  • holiday leisure and activity programmes

  • after-school and Saturday clubs

  • outreach workers
