This is a service that we provide to those that are already under our support.
Many people have said that they would like their community respite to be flexible whether it's choice of accommodation, place or time. We can meet all needs. We support day or night and if it's going to that late night concert or to the party that you want to stay at until everyone else is going home, we can provide the appropriate support. The coach trip that you want to go on is starting out early and coming back in the middle of the night, will not be a problem anymore.
Respite should be an enjoyable time as well as an opening to new opportunities. We can support for long periods of time or short. We can stay in the family home while others go away so you don't have to stop the things you usually do or spend time in a hotel, tent, caravan, etc. You choose where you want to stay and we can support you there.
There are times when you may not want to go to a wedding or a funeral but have other ideas instead, that's alright because you can have our support on those occasions.
Respite is additional hours on top of your regular support and this can mean that you may choose to add a few hours onto your week during special times of the year or use your respite hours in a block as a holiday. It's your time, your choice.
