Keep Lancashire Break Time for Kids with Disabilities/SEN

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

Kids in Lancashire with Disabilities and/or Special Educational Needs (SEND) use Break Time to get regular respite and let their carers have a break. Lancashire County Council are now proposing to end Break Time funding entirely. The service helps families avoid crisis by giving everyone a break. It is currently open to SEND kids without a formal social care assessment and the closure will mean these kids having to go through waiting for social care assessments, having to meet increasingly high thresholds of need, and stretching social care workers even further. Join me to say 'Keep Lancashire Break Time for Kids with SEND'.
