What we offer

The Children’s Short Breaks Home Nursing Team provides short breaks for Norfolk families (except those in Great Yarmouth & Waveney, and Thetford) caring for children with complex health/nursing care needs aged 0 – 18years.

We aim to provide packages of short break care in the family home to families who are in need of extra support.

A Registered Nurse / trained healthcare assistant will care for the child enabling the parent/main carer to have a break from caring.

Short Break sessions of 3 or 4 hours per week are offered and this is decided using a scoring tool.

Continuing Care support is available to support those children / young people with highly complex healthcare needs.

Who it’s for

18 years and under.


Referrals can be made by any health or social care professional using our SPOR form.
