Breathing Space

Breathing Space

Breathing Space is an innovative whole family project that provides valuable space, time and support for young people with additional needs and their parents and carers.

The project has a preventative focus on reducing the risk of education placement breakdowns and escalation, offering positive opportunities for children and joined-up support for families.

The objectives of Breathing Space are:

-Create additional respite provision with a preventative focus on reducing the risk of education placement breakdown and escalation to higher-cost educational provision

-Connect systems to provide joined-up support for families
