Short Break Statement

Bury Council Children’s Services Short Break Statement

The Children & Young Person’s Act 2008 made the provision of short breaks a statutory duty for all local authorities from 1st April 2011.

The regulations cited in Paragraph 6 of Schedule 2 to the Children Act 1989 underpin every local authority’s short break offer to disabled children and young people and their families. Every local authority must provide services designed to assist carers in their area by giving them breaks from caring in accordance with these regulations.

This Statement sets out how the Council will seek to meet the Short Breaks duty as set out in the Breaks for Carers of Disabled Children Regulations 2011
