Personal social care budgets for children with an Education, Health and Care plan

Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)

Children with EHCPs may be eligible for a social care personal budget. That personal budget can be used to provide short breaks and/or support to children and families.

Short breaks provide opportunities such as activities and weekends away for disabled children and young people. This gives them a chance to spend time away from their primary carers. The provision of short breaks in Trafford is based on an assessment of your whole family, looking at both your personal and social needs.

More information can be found in our Short Breaks advice and information page

There is a full explanation of the process and guidance in the Parent guide.

If you have been assessed and qualify for social care support, you can contact the complex needs (children's social care) team
