What We Do

Short Breaks

 

Short breaks give the people that we support opportunities to widen their social networks outside their family, try new activities and become more independent as individuals. At the same time, parents and carers receive a much needed break from the daily routines of supporting a person with an intellectual disability and/or autism. 
 
The Short Breaks service in Cope Foundation is currently providing support to over 200 individuals and their families on a planned and emergency basis. These Short Breaks come in all shapes and sizes, lasting from a few hours a day to an overnight stay and currently are provided in short break houses, the family home of an assessed, trained and vetted volunteer (Home Share) and community locations in the form of holiday breaks.
