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:

Needs assessments

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

Short breaks grants

Children and young people who receive short breaks directly from Cheviots will not receive a short breaks grant.
