What is Respite?
Respite takes many forms. For most of our children our charity work means regular support at home from a Children’s Respite Trust Carer. For others it involves attending a regular activity out and about, or now it can mean a day session at our new East Sussex Children’s Respite Centre.
Either way, it means that families can get a much-needed break from the strain of caring for a disabled child 24 hours a day, and here at the Children’s Respite Trust we understand that living with a disabled child brings with it constant strain.
We understand how difficult it can be to achieve things that everyone else takes for granted like having a rest or dedicating some time to your other children.
The Trust can help you:
- Provide advice to help you get the support to which you are entitled from your local statutory authority
- Have support at home from one of the Trust’s registered carers
- Have your child attend a regular activity, so that he or she is having fun while you get a break
- Attend a day care session at our new respite centre in Uckfield
