Short Breaks Eligibility and Threshold Criteria

The guidance is to help staff identify children who, through disability, meet the threshold criteria for Disabled Children's Service, Social Services and to establish their eligibility for services, including appropriate assessments.


Once a child is deemed as meeting the criteria for receiving a service from the Children with Disabilities Service, an assessment of the appropriate packages of support is then discussed at the Short Breaks Panel.


Short Breaks Panel is held fortnightly every Tuesday.
