Updated Short Breaks for Disabled Children

7 June 2021

We’ve recently undertaken a recommissioning exercise to refresh a number of short breaks services for disabled children. The new contracts will provide a variety of groups, activities, personalised care and support, to meet the needs of children, young people and their families across Cheshire East.

The new service specification was developed following consultation and engagement with parents, carers, children, young people and providers via a number of questionnaires, discussions and a market engagement event.   

Following the tendering process, nine providers were awarded contracts to deliver sessions and activities from 1 June 2021

  1. Caudwell Children
  2. Central Cheshire Buddy Scheme
  3. Cheshire Carers Centre
  4. Disability Positive
  5. Everybody Sport & Recreation
  6. Friends for Leisure
  7. Ruby's Fund
  8. Space4Autism
  9. UA Cheshire Trampoline Park


A booklet that summarises all the providers and details of their activities, location and times is currently being developed and will be available soon, so watch this space.
