Changes at Grace House

What is next for Grace House?
We’re really proud of the work we do at Grace House and over the coming weeks we’re going to be shaping our strategy to build on this success over the next 3 years. We’re committed to carrying on all the great work we do with disabled children and their families and we’re excited that we’re now able to do more youth groups and life skills work from Grace House. We’ll soon be making some changes in the building which will create more counselling rooms so that we can support the increasing demand for that support.
For the last few years, Sunderland Care and Support have operated Short Breaks. This has now transferred to Together For Children and from the end of the this year this will be moving to another location. Please speak to your usual contact at Together For Children about how Short Breaks will be provided after the end of the year.
We strive to adjust to changes in the needs of our community and to work with our partners in a way that provides sustainable support to those that need it. We appreciate that although the coming changes will allow us to do a lot more to support our community, there is inevitably a degree of uncertainty involved with change. This can be daunting to families and young people, and so we welcome any conversations with those affected and that would like to discuss this in more detail with us.
