Earlier this year we were given notice that Sunderland Care and Support would no longer be providing their Short Breaks service hosted by Grace House with delivery transferring to Together For Children (TFC). Following short discussions TFC have decided to look for more suitable premises to deliver their service.
Attending Short Breaks at Grace House has given children the opportunity to access the charity’s excellent facilities, which include a custom made forest school, sensory garden, fully accessible play area, soft playroom, fun outings and so much more.
The support Grace House provides to disabled young people and their families has grown massively over recent years and these support services like counselling, parent and family carer support groups provided by Grace House remain unaffected and will continue.
CEO Victoria Brown “We understand the anxiety this decision will have on those families that currently access TFC’s Short Breaks service and we support those calling for that disruption to be minimised.” To query where Short Breaks will operate from moving forward, we would encourage families to contact TFC.
Should anyone wish to discuss this matter with Grace House please email [email protected].
