- Just over two fifths of the survey sample currently use a Short Breaks service (41%); meaning that the majority do not use/ are not eligible for any (59%).
- As expected, Short Breaks services are used by a higher proportion of children/ young people with an EHCP.
- Those with learning difficulties/ disabilities and/or physical disabilities are more likely to currently be using Short Breaks services than any other need type (49% of both of these cohorts).
Do you currently use any type of Short Breaks service?
