Introduction to Better Breaks
The Better Breaks programme provides 12-month grants to third sector organisations to develop and deliver short breaks projects and services for disabled children and young people (aged 20 and under), and their carers (adult and/or young carers).
The Better Breaks programme funds a wide range of short breaks projects and activities including holiday activity programmes, after school clubs, sports coaching, and youth groups. The activities can be for children and young people, for their carers, or for families to enjoy together.
Better Breaks usually opens for applications in the Autumn of each year for activities planned to start in Spring of the following year.
Our Better Breaks timeline gives an overview of key dates and timings from when the fund opens.
Here below you can watch a short movie about one of our funded project: Team Jak's Mini Denners.
