Coronavirus (Covid-19) – Short Breaks Service Closure We have recently had to make the difficult decision to close our short breaks services provided by Action for Children due to the coronavirus outbreak. We want to keep families and our care and health workers safe. This means that we must follow government guidance on staying at home and social distancing. Letters have been sent out to all families who are affected by this decision. We are committed to reopening short breaks services as soon as it is safe to do so and we will continue to contact families directly with any updates. Updates will also be posted on this page.
In the meantime it is important that you keep yourself and others safe by following government guidance on staying at home and social distancing. The Council has set up a community support hub with lots of advice and information www.buckinghamshire.gov.uk/coronavirus
We know that this a very worrying time for many families and we are doing all we can to offer continued support to parents, carers and children.

- If your child/ren have a social worker please call 01296 383 762

We provide 3 hour short breaks for children with disabilities and/or additional learning needs, giving parents and carers a rest from their caring responsibilities. We offer three-hour Ofsted registered play sessions on weekdays and weekends with activities tailored to support your child’s interests and learning following the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework. These sessions give children aged 0-8 years a chance to be independent, explore different activities and socialise. Staff are trained to meet the needs of each individual child, supporting them to participate fully in the activity they are attending.
