Consultation on proposed changes to Hampshire County Council’s Short Break Activities Programme for children with disabilities

Consultation open from midday on Monday 12 March 2018 and will close at midnight on Sunday 3 June 2018.

Hampshire County Council is holding a 12 week consultation to gather views on proposed changes for its Short Break Activities Programme from April 2019 onwards. This consultation is an opportunity for people to inform the future of Hampshire’s Short Break Activities Programme. This consultation seeks your feedback on a number of proposals for different ways that the Short Break Activities Programme could be provided from April 2019 onwards.

The proposed changes aim to maintain an effective programme, within a reduced budget, that provides good quality breaks for parents and carers of disabled children, while providing fun and educational opportunities for the children and young people receiving them.
