Getting to know you

Once a referral has been received we undertake care planning with you so that we fully understand the needs of your child.

We may then receive training from a member of the community nursing team or other professional that currently works with your child. We then start short introductory visits, to enable you and your child to get used to us and feel comfortable and confident with us. We will then make  plans with you for the first overnight stay. Each planned short break will be designed and tailored to the specific needs of your child.

To find out if Grace House overnight short break service might be suitable for your child, contact us 0191 597 9191 or email
