A warm welcome

A £1.54 million grant will enable another 70 children in Wales to access short breaks. However, there are 460 children in Wales still waiting for short breaks – and many more who are not even on a waiting list. This money is a good starting point and it is hoped a down payment for the future development of short break services in Wales. More carers will be needed to meet the increased demand, and the DVD has come at the right time to inspire new short break carers.
