Evaluation of short breaks

Evaluation of short breaks show that families known to us have:

  • improvements in family life with more capacity to maintain family without the need for crisis intervention
  • children and young people show more self-esteem, social interaction and participation
  • through joint working, seen assessment processes become simpler
