We offer short breaks for young adults aged 19 to 25 with complex disabilities and health needs at our residential bungalows in Chailey, East Sussex. Our short breaks provide families and carers the chance to take some time off.
You can relax in knowing that your child is supported by our team of experienced staff who work hard to provide a fun and meaningful break.
Our homely and relaxed environment ensures young adults staying with us feel safe and comfortable. All bungalows are fully accessible, with in-built hoists, sensory areas, open-plan living spaces, and a garden for residents to enjoy.
Short breaks are a great opportunity for young adults to use our outstanding facilities and participate in activities. This can include the hydrotherapy pool, wheelchair football, immersive space, Leisure and Skills Centre, and trips to local attractions.
Young adults accessing short breaks with us are supported by 24/7 nursing support. We’re incredibly proud of our partnership with NHS Chailey Clinical Services who are located on-site and provide support to our residents whenever they need it. Our NHS partnership gives us access to neurological consultants, nurses, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and rehabilitation engineers all on one site.
Our short breaks include overnight stays from three to four nights a week and we request a booking of a minimum of one stay per month. We also have a day provision from 10am – 4pm at our Hub and 10am -4pm at our Leisure and Skills Centre where you can access a range of activities.
