NEW: Draft Short Break Statement

Cheshire West and Chester is required to publish a Short Breaks Services Statement.  The statement  should provide parents with a full range of  information about the services in plain language and in accessible formats so they can make informed choices.

 The short breaks services statement must state:

• the range of short breaks services available;

• the criteria by which eligibility for services will be assessed; and

• how the range of services is designed to meet the needs of families with disabled children in their area.

 The statement must be kept under review and it should be revised when new services become available, or when there are changes to existing services. Carers’ views must be taken into consideration when preparing and revising the statement. The views of disabled children and young people and of voluntary sector organisations working with disabled people should also be taken into account.

The published statement is out of date and a revised draft copy is available for you to read.  In addition there is a short survey accessed via the link -

to capture your views and any comments you would like to make.  The survey will not take long to complete and the information you provide will be used to finalise the document. 

Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this survey.  The closing date for submissions is Friday 20th September 2019.
