What we offer

We operate a five bedded unit in Aylsham which provides residential short breaks to children with complex health needs within a homely environment. Short Breaks care packages are delivered according to needs and vary with a maximum of five nights per month. This is agreed at placement meetings and reviewed every six months.

Children can still attend school whilst staying for short breaks as there are transport links from most schools within the catchment area. This ensures that the children do not miss out on their education.

Who it’s for

Ages 5 - 18 years.


Referral via Health professionals and Social Workers.
