Children’s Short Breaks
“We aim to provide quality care individually designed to give appropriate support whilst maximising independence and choice”
How does the service work?
Short Breaks are for children and young people with learning disabilities; providing opportunities to enjoy new experiences, have fun, and make new friends, giving the child or young person a break from their everyday routine whilst easing the pressure on parents and carers, enabling them to also have a break.
Peartree Short Break Centre offers residential short breaks at our spacious 5 bedroom purpose built centre, with safe areas for play, relaxation and socialising. We have a sensory room that offers stimulation for a young person’s senses either on an individual or group basis and a beautiful sensory garden with a swing. We have a soft play room with interactive smart board, a games room and living area to spend time with friends.
The centre is fully equipped to cater for complex needs so that service users can enjoy their stay with us, with bathrooms, lounge and bedrooms fully equipped with hoists and designed to be easy to use.
Who is it for?
Peartree Short Break Centre supports children from ages 5 to 18 years old in a safe, child focused environment, where our highly skilled and experienced team design and deliver bespoke support which meets need in a unique and very person centered approach. Our staff provide individually designed quality care and support to maximise the independence and choice of the person.
We provide these services to children and young people from Hertfordshire and Enfield and can also provide services to North London Boroughs, such as Barnet, Camden, Haringey and further afield to the Counties of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex and Buckinghamshire.
