A short break project might be an activity for 2 or 3 hours each week for disabled children while their parent carers get a break from their caring routine, or perhaps a playscheme over the summer. It might be a residential weekend for teenagers, or an evening youth club. It might be a group of families having a long weekend away together, or a group of disabled young people learning to sail.
