One of the ways that Wiltshire Council provides short breaks to children and young people who have special educational needs and/or disability is through the Short Breaks Scheme.
Designed in consultation with parents and carers, the scheme aims to meet the individual needs and interests of children and young people who require additional support to either access or engage in leisure activities or ‘short breaks’.
As per last year, applications for the scheme need to be made via the Wiltshire Council [online form].
On submitting your application you should get a submission page on screen confirming your application. Text on the submission screen will include the following message: “Late applications will not be accepted so you are advised to keep a copy of this page (print or save a copy) as a record of your application should you need to evidence that you applied before the deadline.”
If you experience difficulties, do not have access to the internet or you need some help to make an application, please contact WPCC on 01225 764647 and they will be happy to help you. Please leave a message with your name and telephone number on the answering machine, if you cannot get through.
