North Yorkshire CC: Care provision for children with disabilities and their families DL7

Location: UK » North East » DL

Care provision for children with disabilities and their families

This consists of a number of strands across the service. It includes reducing the current budget for Short Breaks by 30%. Partly this is to do with budget currently unallocated, but it will also include a review of commissioning of short breaks provision for disabled children (“Aiming High”) and respite care (with an expectation of savings of 5%), plus the net saving additional to current MTFS Project target relating to the eastern area contracted service for respite care. We will also review and recommission residential respite provision in Children’s Resource Centres and other placements to reduce their unit costs of care for disabled children and young people. The aim will be to achieve closer integration, increased flexibility, more even county coverage and greater flexibility. It will also consider preventative support to families.
