The Need

West Cumbria urgently needs a suitable Short Break Centre located nearby to support children with disabilities and their families. Currently, a suitable facility does not exist and/or would require extensive travel or financial commitment to access.

The Goals

  • Provide and sustain a supportive environment which benefits the community where all children can be free and safe and able to develop themselves.
  • Provide a centre which is desperately needed in West Cumbria which provides  short breaks for disabled and disadvantaged children, their carers , parents and families
  • The centre will be fun and will encourage and facilitate play, running free in a safe, nurturing and happy environment
  • Through development and provision of a short break centre, we will address a significant need in West Cumbria by providing a quality, accessible, planned and crisis short term break services to eligible people with a disability, their families and carers.
  • To ensure all disabled and disadvantaged children and other young people in need have the right to play safely, express their views and feelings and play a part in the local community.
  • Improve the quality of disabled and disadvantaged children’s lives and life experiences by providing a much needed Short Break Centre in West Cumbria.
