Short Breaks & Respite

For customers and carers

Short breaks are a great way for people with learning disabilities, including autism, to have some time away from home perhaps just as a respite visit, a short holiday or as a first step in learning how to live a more independent life.  

As with all of our services, our short breaks are personalised to suit individual needs and wishes.


Stay with us:

We have Short Break (Respite) houses in Stratford-upon-Avon and Leamington Spa in Warwickshire and in Evesham, Worcestershire.  Each property has been recently refurbished and you can choose to have a TV with Freeview in your room.  We also offer secure storage for valuables. 

Whether you stay in Stratford-upon-Avon, Leamington Spa or Evesham you will have the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. The properties are close to local amenities and you can be involved in everyday life. You can choose to learn domestic skills like cooking and making your bed, or simply take in the social side of life - visit a pub or the local market, whatever you enjoy.

Whilst all properties offer Short Breaks/Transitional Care, each specialises in offering a slightly different service, so it is important that we speak to you to assess which is most appropriate for you.  Trained staff are available 24/7 in all of our houses.


201 Drayton Avenue, Stratford upon Avon – Provides an ideal environment for building up an individual’s practical skills with a view to moving them towards independent living.  The property also has downstairs accommodation with an en suite wet room – ideal for those with physical disabilities.

“Short breaks can be a great way to develop your independence in a supported environment so you can start to think about making choices for the future. We can help ensure friends are able to take short breaks together – and match our customers with others we think they may build relationships with. Time away can act as a break for you - and give a little ‘me’ time to your family and carers too.”
