How to Arrange your stay

We offer short break care to children and young people aged 5 to 17 years and 11 months who have a complex disability, Autism, health need and life limiting condition, living in the North East.

Within our short care packages we offer day care as an alternative to overnight stays, the day can also act as a facilitator to children/young people building up to overnight stays.

Usually you will be referred to Grace House by a professional who is already involved in your child's care. This usually follows a social work or health assessment, but the process can vary depending which Local Authority area you live in. Please talk to us about your individual circumstances and needs and we will do our best to help you through the referral process.

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