Local Offer

The Local Offer sets out provision which is available for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND), aged 0 to 25, including education, health and social care services.

If you cannot find what you are looking for, or need further assistance please contact your Local Authority Family Services team.

Content Section With Information

The West Berkshire Respite Services are a continuum from the activities and short break services we offer across the Local Offer to longer term respite services and even palliative care.

You will find information on our short break care services, short break services run by Health in the area and respite services run by charitable organisations across West Berkshire and across the region.

These short breaks are beneficial for children and their families who have additional and complex health needs.  The child has the chance to experience a different environment and mix with other children away from their main carers and at the same time the carers get a break from their caring role.

If you are over 18 years of age or are looking for respite services for someone you care for that is over 18 years of age, please see West Berks Adult Social Care services
