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 Support Worker. For others it involves attending a regular activity out and about, or it can mean the whole family coming for some time at our Centre in Uckfield.
Either way, it means that families can get some much-needed support with the strain of caring for a disabled child 24 hours a day.
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 Support Workers
- Have your child attend a regular activity, so that he or she is having fun while you get a break
- Join us for a session at our Centre in Uckfield
