Short Breaks and Emergency Care

Short Breaks for Young People

Active Prospects short break service, Young Prospects, provides a break for carers and families and also gives quality experiences to the young people we support.

We ensure that young people with learning disabilities, autism, physical disabilities or complex needs look forward to staying with us and take part in a wide range of activities, both at the service and in the community.

We offer a core service 24/7 with a range of bespoke support to suit each person from 1:1 to shared care with others. We work with you to meet your required needs and support package, following assessment and taster visits.

As well as staying at our specially designed short breaks building in Redhill, we can also offer support in your own home for specific issues, by staff with whom you are already familiar.

We understand it can be sometimes be difficult for young people, families and carers to use short break services and build up trust with the staff team and service. We aim to answer all your questions and listen to your individual requirements.

For more information please contact our Referrals Manager on 01737 924237 or email

“This is an amazing service to work in, there is so much happening all the time, and the people we support are so full of energy and potential.”
