Short Breaks Policy in Focus

Written by Short Breaks NetworkDate 13 Dec 2012

This publication looks at the assessment processes during the ‘daytime only’ Short Breaks that take place in family settings. The issue whether short breaks schemes were available in a simplified form of assessment and approval for carers who provide ‘daytime only links’, was raised. This resource summarises key policy extracts and the outcome of a consultation with the network practice as it was in December 2012. The conclusions and suggestions are also mentioned in this resource.
