In total over 150 parents, carers and personal assistants were consulted to help Bradford review current practices and the Short Breaks Statement. The feedback and the actions to address the issues and gaps were captured in a ‘You said, we did’ format which has informed the refresh of the Short Breaks Statement and informed the focus of a wide ranging review of Short Breaks provision in the District.
