Everyone Benefits from a Break

At Progress we recognise that children and their families sometimes need a break, a change of scenery and the chance to have some fun. This could be time out doing something completely different, enjoying space to be themselves or meeting with other young people who share similar
life challenges.

For parents, a break is also chance to temporarily switch off, recharge batteries, and spend quality time alone. Of course that’s only possible
if you know your child is being well cared for.

Progress short breaks come in a variety of forms, all of them include the reassurance of our excellent care and support.

Residential short breaks where the staff are highly skilled and trained to meet the needs of young people with wide ranging disabilities and complex care needs.

Family-based short breaks with our registered Specialist Foster Carers. Our foster families are trained to meet the needs of your child prior to their stay. Each family is unique and, following careful matching, offers a different experience for each child.

Independence breaks. At Progress we can help your child on their journey to independence. Our residential and supported living breaks for young people aged 16 plus to test the waters and get a feel for what the future holds. Each break is bespoke and we encourage young people to build on their friendships and to take a break with these friends – always focusing on experiences that will develop independent life skills.

All our services (regulated and unregulated) operate to the same high standards required by Ofsted and The Care Quality Commission to give
you peace of mind and reassurance that we’re committed to the
highest standards.
