On November 7th 2012, Short Breaks Network ran a policy-based conference exploring good practice in personalised services for disabled children and young people. This is a Better Breaks conference journal from that event on a personalised approach to short breaks. It is helpful to parents, carers and health, social care and education practitioners as it considers what personalisation means, reaching out for supported volunteering and the Families and Personalisation Project.
