What we are proposing to change
This consultation is about proposed changes to:
The Short Break Grant – a one-off annual payment to families up to £400
Special Needs Inclusion Playcare Service (SNIPs) – Saturday, holiday or after school daytime activities in mainstream clubs
Special Needs Inclusion Playcare Service (SNIPs) – Saturday, holiday or after school daytime activities in targeted clubs for disabled children and young people only
To explore the possibility of developing a facility in the city for 16-25 year olds offering both overnight stays and daytime support for young people
Who can take part?
This questionnaire is for all parent carers and children/young people who currently use, have used, or plan to use short break and/or respite services in Sheffield. This consultation is about the potential impact of the different proposals, how they will affect families.
