Join our short breaks coffee mornings

The Short Breaks Project is working to improve the short breaks offer for disabled children and their families. And as part of this work, we are working alongside Parent Carer Forum Devon to host a series of coffee mornings for parents and carers so that you can talk directly to us.

Listening to feedback from families is fundamental to achieving successful outcomes for all. We want to build on the work that families have been involved in so far by holding regular face-to-face sessions around Devon with Short Breaks Project team members. These sessions will enable us to share updates about the short breaks offer and to hear from families first-hand about your experiences.

We have three sessions taking place across May and June, the first of which is taking place in Barnstaple on Wednesday 18 May. Please see below for full details about the sessions.

As space in the venues is limited, we are asking you to complete the form to book in if you would like to come.

Further sessions in more locations across Devon are being planned for autumn; these dates will be announced once they have been finalised.

More information on Shorts Breaks is available here.
