Wigan Council are undertaking consultation around ‘Short Breaks’ for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities. Deal 2030 The Deal 2030 sets out how we will work together to create a truly world class place to live in the decade ahead. The council cannot realise the potential of our borough alone – to do this we have to be working effectively with our residents and partners. At its heart, The Deal is about empowering communities and enabling them to do what they do best. It has meant finding out what is important to our residents, what truly makes them happy, and focusing on their strengths and talents. Together we want to build a borough where people are healthy, active, happy and doing what they enjoy and that our children and young people have the best start in life, providing positive opportunities for young people to engage with their local community and do things that interest them and keep them safe. Short Breaks Wigan Council are committed to ensuring we have an excellent short break offer in the Borough which provides the right support for our families at the right time. Whilst we feel that we have a number of services that support our families whose children and young people who have special educational needs and disabilities, we know that we don’t always get this right and have reflected that it has been a while since we have reviewed our offer. At the heart of our work, we want to ensure that children and young people with disabilities and their families have a positive experience of living in the borough. We are passionate about making sure that there are a range of services, support and social opportunities available within the community and via respite services that would enable this to happen. To enable us to effectively review and shape our offer, we really need the help of our families, but also help from yourselves as market providers to make sure that our short breaks offer is the best it can be. We would really like to hear your views therefore we will be hosting a virtual “Market Provider” event on the 3rd November from 10:00 till 15:00, if you are interested in attending the event please email and a Teams Meeting invite will be sent out to you.
