Wood View Short Breaks

The Wood View Short Break Service, is a registered Children’s Home, providing high standards of care and support as well as a varied range of indoor and outdoor activities. Each young person is given the opportunity to enjoy the company of their peers and develop their social skills in a safe environment.

We understand that having friends and a social life can be very difficult within the family unit. Time is needed for siblings to have their friends around whilst the parents may have their hands full caring for a child with complex needs. A stay at Wood View Short Break Service enables the child to expand their social and personal skills and also allows the rest of the family to have time doing activities that may be difficult or even impossible in everyday situations.

We aim to give the children in our care, a happy family type environment. Offering a variety of activities, both indoors and out, among highly qualified staff with nurses as an integral part of our team.
