Short Breaks Prepare Young People for Adulthood

Written by Short Breaks PartnershipDate 23 Jun 2015

This case study talks about the value of short break provision in preparing a young person for adulthood. 

Mike got involved with the club in 2010 through an open short breaks session designed to reach out to young people struggling to access their local communities. The club enables young people to meet socially and develop friendships, whilst improving life skills and independence. Mike, along with other attendees to the group, support the staff to plan activities and make choices about what they would like to do. As a result of their experience these young people have grown in confidence and developed new skills that will help them become more independent.
