SHORT BREAKS CONSULTATION EVENT

Friday 9th September 2011

10am – 2.30am The Gateway Education Centre, Shrewsbury

As part of the new Short Breaks Duty that came into force on 1st April 2011 all Local Authorities are now required to produce a Short Breaks Service Statement that detailing;

  • The range of services offered
  • The criteria for assessing eligibility
  • How services are designed to meet the needs of carers

Shropshire Council have produced a draft service statement that is currently under consultation and as part of this process PACC is hosting the above meeting to gather parents view and responses to the document.  The first half of the meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss the draft statement and whether or not it provides families with all the information that they need and if it is based on a good understanding of the needs of local families.  After lunch the meeting will focus on the eligibility criteria for all Shropshire Short Breaks services which are currently under review.

This is an important opportunity to ensure that the services provided meet your needs and that there is a transparency and clarity about how services are accessed.

If you would like to come along to the meeting please complete the booking form below and return to the address at the top of this letter.

With thanks

Sarah Thomas

On Behalf of PACC
