Short break services for children and young people with disabilities

What are short breaks?

Short breaks are an essential part of a continuum of support for parent carers of children and young people with disabilities, by offering parent carers a break from their caring responsibilities or their usual routine.

They include leisure or educational activities at weekends and during school holidays (and occasionally at other times), as well as specialised services for children and young people who need more tailored support, such as  home based support, or overnight support in a residential, home or community setting. They can be for a few hours or overnight, and families may access short breaks very regularly, or occasionally, dependent upon their needs.

Short breaks cash funding, through a Direct Payment or a short break grant can also be used by families to fund their own short break activity, and this can include taking breaks together as a family.

The key principles

We have a set of key principles to underpin our provision of short breaks:

  • Children and young people at the centre – children and young people will be at the centre of the way we work, and can inform and influence their journey
  • Working in Partnership – working in partnership with parent carers, professionals and services to meet individual needs
  • High quality and high performing services – that meet children and young people’s needs, and in which parent have trust and confidence
  • Skilled and supported workforce – that can meet children’s needs
  • Outcomes focused - To alleviate social exclusion, promote emotional wellbeing, independence and life skills
  • Short breaks services that make things better – for families and for children and young people
  •  Building on Strengths – of children and young people, families and provider services

Who are short breaks services for?

Children’s short break services are for children and young people with disabilities, aged up to and including 17 years old. Adults short break services are for young people aged 18 and over, and the services work together for young people aged 18 to 25 years old.

The primary aim of short breaks services are to help parent carers to continue to care for their children with disabilities, and, or siblings, or do so more effectively. So, short break services are aimed to support parent carers where caring for a disabled child is having a significant impact. 

However, all family circumstances are different.

Some children may have a disability that has more impact on the parent carer. Some parent carers may have a lot of support while others may have very little; some parent carers may be lone parents while other families may have a larger family network, and parent carers may have more than one disabled child or be caring for other family members. So we consider the individual needs and that needs may also change; there may be times when parent carers need more short break support and times when they need less.  

Where parent carers are assessed as needing a short break, they can use their short break time to: do day to day tasks that they need to do; take part in a leisure activity themselves; help care for their other children; or undertake some education or training; if this enables them to care for their children with disabilities more effectively.

Short breaks are also important and beneficial to children and young people with disabilities, enabling them to do activities away from their parent carer, socialise with other children and young people, and learn, grow and develop as individuals. They are intended to help achieve positive outcomes for children and young people themselves that will help them through their lives. 

The Range of Short Break Services in Sheffield

Short breaks services are provided by the local authority, health services and a range of third sector organisations.

While many parent carers need time to do things independently of their child that needs care, and some children and young people with disabilities wish to do activities independent of their primary carers. We also know that some of our parent carers wish to do activities with their disabled child(ren) and other members of their family, that give them a break by providing something different from their usual caring responsibilities or routine.

So in Sheffield we have worked to create a broad range of opportunities that enable families to do things together, or provide breaks and opportunities apart.

We are continuing to work on improving our information on short breaks services. We aim to add additional information on each of the services areas in early 2018, and work with parent carers on defining the eligibility criteria.

A Short Break Grant

This is a one-off payment, up to a maximum of £400 per family if they have a child or a young person with a disability who is aged under 18. Some families want the opportunity to arrange their own types of activities for their short break, and we want to support families to be able to put in place creative and innovative ideas that meet their individual needs. This grant is to give the parent carer some level of break from their additional caring responsibilities.

Who Can Apply?

You can apply if you are the parent carer of a child with a disability:

  • Who is under 18 years old
  • You are on means-tested benefits or your Household income is less than £21,000 per year
  • You do not already receive another short break or respite service or a Direct Payment for that individual child
  • Your child or young person receives High Rate Disability Living Allowance in either care or mobility components (0-16 years)

OR

  • your child or young person receives Enhanced Rate Personal Independence Payment for either the daily living or mobility components (16 – 18 years)

 

You may still be eligible to apply if:

  • You are on means-tested benefits or your family income is less than £21,000 per year
  • You do not already receive any other short break or respite service, or a Direct Payment for that individual child
  • You submit an ‘Additional information Form’ (last page) which has been completed and signed by a relevant professional who knows your family and how your child’s disability impacts on the whole family.
  • You only need to fill in the ‘Additional information Form’ if you don’t receive High Rate Disability Living Allowance or Enhanced Rate Personal Independence Payment.

 

If you already receive another short break service, you are not eligible to apply for the Short Break Grant however you can chose to change to a Short Break Grant from your current service. You need to think very carefully and remember, that the Short Break Grant is a one – off payment per year, most other services provide for your family all year round.

If you have more than one child with a disability, we are only able to offer one Short Break Grant per household. You may be eligible for a different short break service for any other disabled children and young people in your family.

 

What is my first step?

If you believe you meet these criteria then your first step is to complete a Household Income Assessment by calling 0114 273 4567 choose option 4 and then option 2. A member of staff will then help you through the process. See About the Household Income Assessment section

When you receive confirmation that you are eligible to apply for the Short Break Grant you can download the application form and guidance notes.

 

What can I use the Short Break Grant for?

The Short Break Grant is designed to be flexible and you can use it in a variety of different ways, for example you could:

  • Buy a gym membership for you or for your child
  • Pay for family days out – including travel and food costs
  • Pay for cinema trips or a yearly cinema pass
  • Pay for a host of other leisure activities
  • Pay for additional support to allow your child to access an activity while you have a break
  • Access a holiday or play scheme
  • Pay for childcare to allow you have days or nights out

 

These are just examples, what is most important is that the grant helps to reduce your stress in some way.

Although the use of the grant is flexible, there are some things it cannot be used for, such as:

  • Electronic equipment e.g. smart phones, tablets, laptop etc.
  • Decorating
  • Furniture
  • Toys or clothes
  • Annual ground rent for a caravan or holiday home
  • Having a car serviced or repaired

 

Please see the Application and Guidance notes for further information about the Short Break Grant. If you have more questions or need help to apply, please contact us by email at cypf_shortbreaksgrant@sheffield.gov.uk or call us on 0114 273 6032

Daytime Short Breaks Activities from the Special Needs Inclusive Play Service (SNIPS)

Day time Short Breaks and the Special Needs Inclusive Play Service (SNIPS)

 

Day time short break activities are available at weekends, after school, evenings and school holidays. They are provided by:

  • Universal Clubs: leisure activities and clubs such as cubs and brownies, art and craft, and sports clubs
  • Clubs for disabled children and young people only commissioned by Sheffield City Council

 

SNIPS is a small team, they provide support, advice, guidance and training to a variety of Universal Clubs and the specially commissioned Short Breaks Clubs dedicated for disabled children and young people.

They work in partnership with parents and carers and the disabled child or young people:

  • to identify the right short break and the activity the child or young person wishes to take part in
  • to understand children and young people’s needs and wishes 
  • to increase the ability of community based universal leisure activities and services to meet the additional needs of children and young people who are disabled, and support access to these activities where this would not be possible without additional support
  • to work closely with providers of specialist day time short break activities (for disabled children and young people only) offering guidance, advice and support to ensure high quality services that support positive outcomes for disabled children and young people.
  • to support children and young people’s access to, and engagement with, day time short break services
  • training to both universal and dedicated clubs to support inclusive access

Universal Leisure Activities or Clubs

We have about 50 providers in the city who offer universal leisure activities and clubs, where children and young people with disabilities take their short break, including:

  • Art and craft
  • Guides, Brownies, Scouts and cubs
  • Sports clubs, tennis, karate, football, rock climbing

 

We are keen to support disabled children and young people to attend universal leisure activities or clubs for a short break activity as this enables them to do things they enjoy, perhaps with other local children and young people but sometimes their level of need that means they need additional support to do this.

If your child is able to attend a universal club without additional staffing needs, the SNIPs service will offer advice, guidance and support to the club and family, to help this happen.

If your child is assessed as needing additional staffing, for example on a 1 to 1 staff / child ratio, we would support the club by funding the staff needed to support your child’s attendance.

 

How do I apply for and find a Universal Club short break?

If support or funding is required, you must apply or be referred to SNIPs, please see the process below, and SNIPs will liaise with the provider.

If there is a club your child is interested in, please talk to them about your child attending. If they feel that they need support to enable your child to attend you can apply to SNIPs for support.

  • If you do not currently receive a SNIPs short break service please contact the Early Help line on 0114 2037485
  • If you already have a Social Worker your referral must come through your Social Worker

A SNIPS application is completed and sent in as a referral. Following referral a SNIPs mentors will talk to parents about their support needs, and to children and young people about their interests and what they like to do in their spare time. They may visit you to understand the child’s and families needed and help identify and put in place the right short break service.

If a short break service is agreed, a member of the team will contact the universal leisure provider or the dedicated short break club.

For further information in SNIPS please see:

http://www.sheffielddirectory.org.uk/kb5/sheffield/directory/advice.page?id=UrgO9wgJmTg

How much service will I receive?

The length of the activity varies from club to club and activity to activity, and this is decided by the provider. However, the local authority can only fund a maximum of 5 hours for an activity session as this is consistent with other day time short break provision. Some parent carers find clubs that run for longer, if this is the case you should discuss this with the activity provider, you may be able to attend by paying for any additional hours yourself.

Short breaks in dedicated clubs for disabled children

What are Dedicated Clubs for Disabled Children Only?

 

Some children and young people have a higher level of need which makes it difficult for them to attend a universal leisure activity or club. To support these children and young people, the local authority commissions activity clubs for disabled children and young people only, these clubs have specially trained staff, adapted premises and activities tailored to the children and young people’s needs, abilities and interests.  We call these dedicated short break clubs.

 

They offer a range of different types of activities and run Saturdays term time only, evenings, or during school holidays (excluding Christmas), and usually between 2.5 and 5 hours depending upon the activity, needs of the children or young people or the location.

 

Who can attend the Dedicated Clubs for Disabled Children?

If it is assessed that your child needs a higher level of support, experience, or specific skills, and a universal leisure activity or club is not able to meet their needs, you may be able to receive a short break in a dedicated club for disabled children and young people. These clubs are only for children and young people with higher level needs and only accessible via referral from a SNIPS mentor.

How do I apply to SNIPs for a Universal or Dedicated short break service?

  • If you do not currently receive a SNIPs short break service please contact the Early Help line on 0114 2037485
  • If you already have a Social Worker your referral must come through your Social Worker

A SNIPS application is completed and sent in as a referral. Following referral a SNIPs mentors will talk to parents about their support needs, and to children and young people about their interests and what they like to do in their spare time. They may visit you to understand the child’s and families needed and help identify and put in place the right short break service.

If a short break service is agreed, a member of the team will contact the universal leisure provider or the dedicated short break club.

 

 

How much service will I receive?

How often your child will receive a short break is based upon your child’s needs, the impact on your family life and the level of support a parent carer needs. So the greater level of support a parent carer needs, the more often a child would attend a short break service. These activities vary from 2 hours to 5 hours in length, depending upon the activity, the needs of the children, and the provider. 

 

Do I have to contribute at all?

At the moment the SNIPS services are free to all families. In the future, during 2019, we will be making some changes.

 

Universal Leisure Club:

  • If you use a universal leisure club parent carers will be asked to pay the basic activity cost to the club, and as a council, we will continue to pay for the staff who support your child to attend
  • We will gather a list of all the clubs and their costs in 2019

Dedicated specialist clubs:

  • For each session that is allocated as part of your package of support, the cost to families will be £7. So, if your child should attend every Saturday, you will pay £7 for every Saturday
  • If you more than one child attending a specialist club your session payment will be a maximum of £10

Affordability:

  • If you are in receipt of means-tested benefits or your household income is below £21,000 you will not have to pay for, or contribute to the activity cost, but you will need to complete the Household Income Assessment

If your child attends a club that you find too expensive to pay on an ongoing basis you may be able to find a lower cost alternative

About the Household Income Assessment

Household income is the total income from all people sharing a household.

The easiest way for us to tell if you are eligible to apply is to look if you are entitled to free school meals. This does not show us your income, but if a family is eligible for free school meals it usually means that they are in receipt of certain benefits.

If you are not eligible for free school meals, we will ask for evidence of other means-tested benefits (listed below):

  • Income-based Free School Meals
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Income Support
  • Pension Credit
  • Tax Credits (Child Tax Credit and Working Tax Credit)
  • Housing Benefit
  • Council Tax Support
  • Social Fund (Sure Start Maternity Grant, Funeral Payment, Cold Weather Payment)
  • Universal Credit.

If you are not receiving any of the benefits listed, we will ask for evidence of your family income.

The types of income taken into account are:

  • PAYE – including commission, bonuses, overtime
  • Self-employed income (taxable profit for financial year ending between 6 April 2015 and 5 April 2016)
  • Income from property
  • Pension income
  • Other benefits and other income including maintenance payments
  • Interest from bonds, trusts, bank/building society and any investments
  • Dividends

Disability Living Allowance (DLA) and Personal Independence Payment (PIP)

DLA and PIP are non-taxable and are not counted as income for means-tested benefits.  DLA and PIP does not count as part of your household income in these proposals.

To do the Household Income Assessment Tel:  0114 273 4567 choose option 4 and then option 2

And a member of staff will take you through it

Direct Payments (DP)

What are Direct Payments?

A direct payment is a cash payment with which parents and carers can buy their own short break service or employ a Personal Assistant to support their child / young person to do activities they chose.

Who can receive a direct payment?

If you have been assessed as needing a short break you can request to take the short break as a direct payment instead. You would manage the funding yourself, so before you receive the funding on behalf of your child, children or young person, you will be asked to open a separate DP bank account.

How do I access a direct payment?

To request a direct payment you must have an assessment of need. This could be either by a Social Worker (a Sheffield Social Care Assessment SSCA) or by a Family Common Assessment Framework (FCAF), these can be completed by your school, a MAST worker or the Children’s Disabilities Team: The process works as follows:

  1. A request for an assessment would go to the Sheffield Safeguarding Hub based at Moorfoot Sheffield. The contact number is 0114 2734855
  2. The assessment will determine if you have unmet needs that social care are required to meet. 
  3. You will then have the option of receiving the support via direct payment. A plan will be made of how the money will be spent and agreed outcomes will be made
  4. The Direct Payment Support officer will arrange a visit to discuss with you setting up the DP, giving advice regarding  writing a PA job description,  finding a Personal Assistant; DBS checks; engaging a payroll provider; employer liability insurance; pensions and setting up a bank account.

The aim is to set up a Direct Payment within 3 months, this is usually achieved, however, if a family are looking to recruit a PA it can sometimes take longer to get going and recruit a Personal Assistant.

If you would like further information about direct payments there is a handbook ‘Employing Personal Assistant handbook’ this is available from your Social worker or Early Intervention Officer

Disability Sheffield also offer advice and guidance about direct payments, personal assistants, and provide an online Personal Assistant Register.

http://disabilitysheffield.org.uk/support-for-individual-employers-and-personal-assistants

How much direct payment would I receive?

The number of hours of direct payments you would receive would depend upon your assessment of need. This varies from family to family.

Foster Care Short Break

A short break with a foster carer offers disabled children and young people an overnight short break in a family home, some foster carers also provide some daytime care.

Who can receive a Foster Carer Short Break?

As the provision of Foster Care short breaks is highly regulated there is a strict admission process as set out in the Children Act 2004. If your child has high level complex need, or is unable to access other short break services for example due to age, or other reasons you may be able to receive a short break provided by a foster carer

How do I access a Foster Carer Short Break?

 A qualified social worker must complete an assessment of need and create a plan prior to placement. The process for entry to a Foster Care short break is as follows:

  1. Contact your social worker if you have one. If you do not have a social worker then contact Children’s Disabilities Team
  2. A qualified Social Worker will visit you and assess the need for an overnight short break
  3. The social worker will make recommendations to their Senior Fieldwork Manager for approval.
  4. If approved this will be taken to the Learning Disabilities and  Difficulties  Panel  to take the next steps to ensure a foster carer is identified to best meet your child / young person’s needs.

A planning meeting will be held to meet the carers in their home and discuss routines and introductions.  This service will be reviewed annually but can last throughout your child’s childhood until 18yrs when adult services become involved.

 

How much service will I receive?

One weekend a month for one or two nights is usually offered. Sometimes extra care in the holidays can be provided and a night in the week as well as a weekend.

Children’s Overnight Short Break Residential Homes

What is overnight short break residential support?

There are 4 residential short breaks homes and these offer overnight short breaks where caring for a child or young person is having a significant impact on the family. Equally the homes are increasingly offering support, in partnership with other services, to provide targeted interventions to allow the child or young person to move forwards. This has seen some significant success in reducing the impact of certain behaviours on families and increasing the range of more universal service opportunities for children and young people.  The homes are:

Gibson House:

Is a 9 bedded short breaks home in the Bents Green area of Sheffield (next to Bents Green School). It caters for young people aged 11-18 with learning disabilities / difficulties. It also has a 6 bedded full time residential home on site again for young people aged 11-18 with learning disabilities / difficulties.

Mulberry Lodge:

Is a 6 bedded short breaks home between the Handsworth and Woodhouse Mill areas of Sheffield. It caters for young people aged 7-18 with learning disabilities / difficulties.

Rushey Meadow

Is a 6 bedded short breaks home in the Bannerdale / Millhouses area of Sheffield. It caters for young people aged 7-18 with learning disabilities / difficulties.

Chancet Wood

Is a 6 bedded short breaks home in the Greenhill area of Sheffield. It caters for young people aged 5 to 18 with physical disability and / or severe multiple disabilities.

 

How Do You Apply for this Service?

As children’s short breaks homes are highly regulated there is a strict admission process as set out in the Children Act 2004. Parent carers cannot apply for provision directly to the homes because a qualified social worker must complete an assessment of need and create a plan prior to placement. The process for entry to a residential short breaks home is as follows:

  1. Contact your social worker if you have one. If you do not have a social worker then contact the Hub on 0114 273 4855.
  2. A qualified Social Worker will be in touch to perform an assessment.
  3. The social worker will make recommendations to their Senior Fieldwork Manager for approval.
  4. If approved this will be taken to the Residential Placement Panel to ensure the home best placed to meet you child / young person’s needs is assigned.
  5. The home will be in touch to perform an assessment to ensure that all your child’s needs can be met and all information needed to keep them safe is gathered, your young person’s file is completed and everything is in place before they will organise beginning the overnight stays.

How Much Service will I Receive?

The number of nights provided will be based upon need. When we discuss need this may be the needs of your child entering the home, your needs as parent carers or the needs of the wider family.  All young people will begin with a service of 1 night per fortnight for a 2 month period, to aid in transitioning your child into the home and to give the home time to further assess your child’s needs. There will then be a full time offer of service made which will be re-assessed every 12 months. There is no standard level of service. The amount you will receive will be based upon meeting the needs of your family and child. There is NO COST to the parent carers for this service. 

Transition to Adult Services

Within Sheffield City Council, services for children and services for adults have both been brought under a single People’s Services Directorate.  For children up to the age of 17 inclusive, the short breaks are provided or commissioned by the children, young people and families element, and short breaks for young people aged 18 or over are supported by Adults Social care within the Peoples Services. 

In a city wide team for children and young people 0 – 25 years old, Adults and Children, Young People and Families Services will work together and closely with young adults and family carers to ensure a continuity of support as the young person moves into adulthood, and as their needs and circumstances change.

There are a variety of options for young adults - from Direct Payments to overnight residential respite including some nursing care provision. We will aim to begin a transition process in a timely way to support the transition planning well before a move to adult services.

 

The council as a whole is moving to locality based working. Adult services will work within 7 localities which bring together a mix of roles, skills and expertise.
