The Short Breaks statement consultation has been re-launched

A Short Breaks Statement explains the range of short breaks on offer, who they are for, and how to apply for them. 

Cumbria County Council’s current Short Breaks Statement was written in 2016. We are proposing to make changes to the Statement to bring it up to date.

We are re-launching the consultation on our Short Breaks Statement, which was paused in March this year. Since March, we have engaged with parents and carers to coproduce the new draft Statement.

We would like to invite you to comment on this revised Short Breaks Statement and encourage parents, carers, children and young people and SEND practitioners to give your feedback.

Read the proposed new statement and provide your views by completing the online questionnaire:

The consultation closes on 6th August 2021. Once all responses have been collated we will tell you the outcome in a future edition of this newsletter.
