Calderdale Disability Respite Service Praised

Below is one of the positive comments in the latest Ofsted report for Calderdale Council’s Linden Brook short breaks service for children with disabilities and complex needs, which has been rated outstanding for the fifth year in a row.

“One child said that he was happy to visit the home, with a big smile and excitement on his face.”

The respite facility provides short break services for children and young people, during the day and overnight, from the ages of four to 17. Care, support and a wide range of activities are delivered in a safe environment, giving young people the opportunity to develop, and parents and carers the chance to rest.

The service was rated outstanding in all areas inspected by Ofsted – children and young people’s overall experiences and progress; how well children and young people are helped and protected; and the effectiveness of leaders and managers.
