We have a duty to provide short breaks services under the Children Act 1989 (Section 17) and Short Breaks for Carers of Disabled Children Regulations (April 2011).
The Small Bids Programme is part of Short Breaks. Applications for funding are invited from organisations, groups and departments (not individuals) to provide social activities that are outside of school / school hours for disabled children or for disabled children and their families. To follow the ethos of ‘short breaks’, activities bid for should be fun, safe and life enhancing for the child or young person.
Please find an information guide for the Small Bids Programme below which MUST be read before an application is submitted. Please download an application form below. If you have any problems accessing these documents please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
