Lancashire Break Time
Break Time short break activities provide a range of activities and groups for children and young people with special educational needs and/or disabilities who meet the criteria to attend and who do not receive short breaks following a social care assessment of need.
Each eligible child or young person can access up to 78 hours of Break Time activities and groups each year which can be used between one or two Break Time providers.
You can register for Break Time activities online. Please check your child meets the criteria before you register. You will need to register each year. Once you get confirmation that you are registered, you will get a membership number (unique identifier number) to use to book your child or young person onto activities and groups.
