Hackney Short Breaks permit siblings and other carers to accompany children, using funds from Individual Budgets to pay for the subsidised cost. The breaks are especially popular for children with ASD and Sensory Impairment. All families are welcome, including those where children may not be registered with Short Breaks but would benefit from intervention to support the family.

Kench Hill will be hosting future breaks on the following dates: April 17-19th (Easter holidays); May 31st - June 2nd (end of half-term).
