Action for Children - Vale Short Breaks

This is a residential short breaks service for the most vulnerable disabled children and young people in the Vale of Glamorgan, their age ranging from 7 to 17 years. The project has been developed in partnership between Action for Children and the Vale of Glamorgan Council Children and Young People’s Services.

The service is provided from new purpose-built premises in Robins Lane in Barry. The service accommodates a maximum of four children at any one time. Lengths of stay can be flexible. Stays are booked in advance through the child’s respite care plan, which is reviewed on a six monthly basis. Families can access this service via the Child Health and Disability Team at Haydock House in Barry.

Please note that the contact below is only available between 9.00 am – 5.00 pm Mondays to Fridays.
