Cumberland Council - Targeted Short Breaks

Cumberland Council - Targeted Short Breaks Registration Window Open!

A reminder that CC Targeted Short Breaks Registration window is now open until 31 October! All families will need to re-register for the 2024/25 Targeted Short Breaks year, which will run from 1 February 2024 – 31 January 2025.

All families need to re-register for this, regardless of when they last registered for Targeted Short Breaks. This is due to entering the new Targeted Short Breaks year, and to ensure correct records are maintained following Local Government Reorganisation. They are also welcoming new families who are eligible to the service!

To be eligible to access the Targeted Short Breaks service, your child or young person must:

  • be ordinarily resident in Cumbria, and  
  • have a disability as defined in the Equality Act 2010, and  
  • have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), and  
  • be within the academic year groups Year 1 to Year 13.

Once registration closes on 31 October 2023, your application will be reviewed by our Targeted Short Breaks Team. The team will let you know the outcome of your application by 1 December 2023. If your child is eligible, you will receive a booking link and be able to book activities through this link. 

If your child or young person is not eligible to access Targeted Short Break Activities, they will let you know via email, and you will have the option to appeal.
