Parenting Team:

In Shropshire, we recognise how important the role of parents and carers is, and how difficult that role can be without the knowledge of appropriate strategies that can be used to support with everyday parenting challenges. The Parenting Team offers a variety of services to parent carers with children with SEND.

Short breaks are a range of opportunities, for children aged from 0 to their 18 birthday with disabilities (or additional needs that could be linked to a disability) that live in Shropshire.  

They are specifically designed to enable children and young people with disabilities to participate in activities and opportunities. They take place after school, at weekends, during school holidays or overnight. They can provide activities such as after school clubs, weekend activities, sports, youth groups, drama groups, holiday clubs and overnight stays with a short break foster carer or in a residential home.  

Some Short Breaks might also involve assistance in the home in the evening, at weekends or during the school holidays. https://www.shropshire.gov.uk/the-send-local-offer/social-care/childrens-social-care/short-breaks-for-disabled-children/ 

Healthier Together - a Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin Initiative

Healthier Together provides advice for parents, young people and pregnant women, as well as clinical resources to support healthcare professionals – which means that your child can receive consistently high-quality care, irrespective of which healthcare professional they see.
 

As a parent, career or guardian, you'll find clear information on common childhood illnesses for both physical and mental health, including advice on what 'red-flag' signs to look out for, where to seek help if required and how long your child's symptoms are likely to last.
 

The Healthier Together programme is a community initiative that relies upon patients and healthcare professionals working together to improve how local healthcare is delivered.
