Cheviots help families with disabled children under 17 get the support they need to live ordinary family lives.
Through social workers, and short breaks and family support workers, we play a part in assessing children and provide support and services to families.
Services that Cheviots offer:
- listening to disabled children, acting on their views, and providing them with choices
- supporting disabled children and their families to take part in and enjoy local community life, using local childcare, leisure and recreational facilities
- supporting parents and carers to become equal partners in making decisions about service developments and priorities
- providing access to services, and family activities during the school holidays
Some families need more support and short break services than others due to the impact of their child’s complex disability and family situation. Families who need more support will be assessed further. You can request an assessment or review at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Short breaks grants
Children and young people who receive short breaks directly from Cheviots will not receive a short breaks grant.
