The main focus of Corseford Short Breaks is to provide respite to families whilst providing a positive and meaningful experience to children and young people, and to support integration into the wider community. Social activities such as trips to places of interest and fun experiences are part of the respite experience.

Every individual has the right to experience, to question, to be challenged and to choose, as well as being supported to be as independent as possible.

We work closely with families to ensure a good quality of life for children and young people. This is achieved through the delivery of holistic care and support and by adopting the principles of GIRFEC and Person Centred Planning.

We have highly skilled staff, who are able to meet the needs of the children and young people referred to us, including those with epilepsy and those who require: rescue medication management; support with medication administration; enteral feeding; breathing management support; and other personal care needs.  We are a communication friendly environment and actively encourage all children and young people to make choices and use their chosen communication method.

On-site, we have an array of fun activities including a trampoline, sensory theatre, over-sized out-door games and arts and crafts.

Referrals can be made through Social Work or individuals and are open to any disabled child or young person, aged 5-21.
