We are a flexible and responsive service which places the service user at the heart of everything we do. We work closely with families and other professionals to ensure the best outcomes for the people in our care. We foster a ‘can do attitude’ and empower our service users to achieve.

Parent Quotes:

Helps massively giving parents a break, I couldn’t fault the service.

The service provides a fun and social experience for my children. At the same time this gives us a break from our caring role. Time to relax and recharge our batteries, following a break we feel refreshed and more able to cope with our responsibilities.

Our Bases

We are based in two locations across the North East of England:

  • North of Tyne
  • South of Tyne

We provide support to any child or young person from across the North East with a wide range of support programmes and activities. 


In order to provide person centred services it is vital that practitioners have an in-depth, current, holistic assessment to inform their practice. The assessment will feed in to the service user’s personal profile, which will support staff to meet the needs of the service user. Evaluation and review will form an intrinsic part of the assessment which will feed into learning pathways creating more positive outcomes for the service user. This information will be shared with service commissioners to evidence service outcomes.
