Welcome to the Autumn 2012 edition of the Surrey Short Breaks Newsletter! The Short Breaks team has been out and about across the summer at short break schemes, consulting with children, families and professionals and working together with short break providers to improve services for children and young people in Surrey. We have also been attending various events to share our short break information and resources including two information events for parent support groups in Surrey run by ‘Contact A Family.’ Here there were talks from the Family Information Service, Family Voice Surrey, Parent Partnerships, and workshops on information provision and family support. These were a great opportunity to meet new families and professionals and talk about how we can deliver information for parents now and in the future. Another event we were very pleased to be part of was the Disability Challengers Family Fun Day on the 20 th July. Here we met Matthew Kelly and some of the players from the amazing Guildford Heat basketball team, but more importantly we met some lovely families, children and young people! We were also found supporting children and young people testing out the wonderful adapted bikes from the extremely popular new ‘Wheels for All scheme!’ In other news, The Short Breaks Team is currently in the process of developing various publications aimed at Parents & Carers’ of SEN and disabled children in Surrey: The Short Breaks Leaflet will outline what short breaks are, the types of short breaks available in Surrey and how they can be accessed. The Short Breaks Directory will provide an overview of the individual organisations providing the services in Surrey along with useful links to other services. Before going to print, the team will be working closely with Family Voice Surrey to obtain their feedback on the information provided...Watch this space!

Information for Carers What is the CAF? The Common Assessment Framework (CAF) is a new way of working with children and young people. An assessment is a simple way of gathering information and recording it in an organised way. Actions will be agreed with you and your child to make sure your child gets the right sort of help. How will the CAF help? The CAF involves listening to you and your child's needs as well as what is working well in your child’s life. By working together with you, we can help your child receive the right support at an early stage, before a small need grows into a larger one. The CAF will ensure that everyone involved with your child, such as teachers, health visitors, or nursery staff work together to support your child. What happens next? Based on the information you and your child provide, all those who can help you or your child will create an action plan and work together to provide the support your child needs. Professionals who complete a CAF may also be able to apply for Carers’ Break funding from Surrey County Council to meet your identified support needs. For more information, advice and guidance Talk to a professional involved with you or your child Call the Contact Centre Children's Team on 0300 200 1006 Or visit www.surreycc.gov.uk and search ‘CAF’

Merrow mum Gilly Walker is the 1,000th carer to be prescribed a Surrey GP Carer Break under a scheme launched by NHS Surrey, in partnership with Surrey Independent Living Council (SILC) and Action for Carers (Surrey) last December.

The Carers’ Breaks scheme allows GPs to prescribe payments of up to £500 to carers. This can either be used to pay for replacement care while they take time out from their caring responsibilities or to buy goods or services, which will help take the stress off their caring role. To be eligible for a payment, carers must be registered with their GP as a carer in Surrey. GPs, who are registered with the scheme, decide how much to pay, depending on clinical need and the resources available. Payments are administered by SILC. If you are interested in receiving a Carer’s Break payment, please discuss this with your GP. If your GP has not yet registered with the scheme, they can find out more at www.gpcarersinfo.co.uk.


10k Grant Programme 2012-2013 The Short Breaks 10K grant programme was initially introduced by Surrey during the Aiming High for Disabled Children programme in 2010, and is now continuing into its third year!

Since 2010, the grant programme has provided various organisations with funding for a variety of projects across Surrey including group activities and holidays, one-off events, school holiday schemes, Saturday clubs, arts and crafts events and much more. Some of the above were so successful that we have since converted them to regular schemes! The grant for up to £10,000 can be used to fund projects and programmes that provide short breaks to children and young people in Surrey. Over the next two pages, you will see just a few organisations out of many that have received 10k grant funding to run schemes and services. During 2011-12, the following 10K grants were awarded: If you know of or are involved in an organisation, scheme or group that might benefit from funding from this programme, please contact Joanna Woodward for an application pack. Joanna.woodward@surreycc.gov.uk For successful applications, the money awarded must be spent and services must be provided between the 1st April 2012 and the 31st March 2013.

As the grant is for revenue funding, it cannot be used to purchase capital items with a total value in excess of £2,500. The grant money cannot be used to substitute existing funding for short break provision.

10K Grant Schemes Following an extremely popular and successful pilot with funding from the Surrey Short Breaks 10K grant programme, the Children’s Trust will now be extending their already wonderful play and leisure provision! From September 2012, the Children’s Trust will be running 3 Saturday clubs per term for children and young people with multiple disabilities and complex healthcare needs! Many already enjoy the Children’s Trust Holiday Play Camps during the Easter, Summer and Christmas holidays which provide children and young people the opportunity to enjoy play and leisure activities and have fun in a safe and caring, child-centred environment. Every child is supported on a 1:1 basis to ensure their specific needs are met and that they can participate in all the activities they wish to. Activities are all adapted for the individual child or young person’s abilities and include visits from entertainers, music and sensory sessions, arts and crafts, sensory play, cooking, games and sports, soft play, walks to the local village duck pond and park and lots more. The extension to provide Saturday clubs will now allow children and young people with multiple disabilities and complex healthcare needs this regular opportunity for play and leisure whilst providing their parents with a valuable short break. For more information and to book on to any of the above schemes, please call Louise Gray on 01737 365837 or email lgray@thechildrenstrust.org.uk.

We are please to announce that the Normandy based Therapy Garden has been successful for a second year’s 10k Grant! The Therapy Garden will be running more of their gardening day breaks, for 1-2 days a week during school holidays.

The emphasis is on having fun with gardening, without the constraints of having to study as part of a course. Young gardeners can take part in a number of different activities, from learning how to grow and care for plants, to propagating and using the polytunnels. Last year they had great success making scarecrows, wind chimes and bird balls (for the birds visiting the garden to feed on), and creative activities such as painting ceramic pots for the garden. There are 20 places each day, aimed at ages 13-18. Cost £12 per day (concessions for low income). The next gardening day is planned for 31 October, 10am-4pm. Contact 01483 813846 or visit www.thetherapygarden.org


Short Break Capital Grants! The British Disabled Waterski and Wakeboarding Association! The British Disabled Waterski and Wakeboarding Association’s centre at Heron Lake, Wraysbury, recently received £110,000 capital grant funding from Surrey Short Breaks for Disabled Children. After many months of mud and machinery, their works (involving pile drivers, major underwater excavation and bank reinforcement) are now completed!

On a wet and windy day in June 2012, Julie Pointer and Joanna Woodward attended the official opening of the cable and jetty. A new accessible pan-disability jetty allows a wide range of users with disabilities to access the facility in a safe and accessible environment, and features: •movable hoist to safely transfer users into equipment and boats •wider jetty to enable 2 wheelchairs to pass safely •access ramps and stable working platforms for easier transfer •permanent bespoke dock for wheelchair accessible boat. A new two-way cable tow: •allows water entry without a boat •allows users to learn to do deep-water starts in a safe, non-threatening environment •allows users to ride the cable tow as a standalone activity •permits quicker progression of skills. Heron Lake is the national centre of excellence for disabled water skiing and wakeboarding in the UK. They pride themselves on being able to offer anyone a waterskiing experience, no matter what their disability. Adaptive water skiing offers a level of excitement rarely matched, and can offer a sporting outlet to people with disabilities who are limited in participation in other sports. It is a unique facility, as it is the only lake in the world that provides bespoke, full time facilities for the disabled. Last year the facility provided for approximately 600 children. As a charity, they operate to cover their running costs and not for profit. Many of Surrey’s organisations and special schools that work with children and young people with disabilities use the facility for day events and for overnight stays. Heron Lake is also available to individual families to book, which enables a whole family to participate in a sport that they can enjoy together. The lake is at Wraysbury, a couple of minutes’ drive from junction 13 of the M25, but despite its proximity to the motorway and Heathrow, is a surprisingly peaceful wildlife haven.

It’s a really exciting time for Link Leisure! The office team has recently moved into temporary accommodation to clear the way for our main building to be completely refurbished! In March 2013 we will have brand new facilities including a hygiene suite, sensory rooms and gardens, outside play areas, accessible kitchens and a drop-in centre. We can’t wait to get into our new building and providing even more fantastic services for our users. Our annual Football Fun day was a great success. As teams competed for glory on the Meadow Sports pitch, fans enjoyed cakes made by our supporters from Hoe Bridge School, horse rides from Super Duper Farm, golf lessons, ballet from Rebecca’s Dance School and a tug of war. Despite the rain and wind, everyone had a wonderful day!

Our High Notes Choir recently held a concert, accompanied by Guildford Symphonia. Over 70 people enjoyed listening to our very own version of Stomp, some classic Bond themes and music from Star Wars. The Choir has also been busy practising their acapella skills with VOCES8 and continue to get better every time! They will soon be getting some further inspiration by seeing Singing in the Rain in the West End. We have been busy with our Summer schemes, with activities running every single weekday! We visited the animals at Bockett’s farm and Marwell Zoo, we were visited by the animals from Crocodile Encounters, we had cooking lessons, got extremely wet at Heron Lake and much more! After an action packed trip to Centre Parcs, we rounded off the summer with an awards evening to celebrate the achievements of our young people. In September we are looking forward to taking part in the first Surrey Supercycle, with our partners in the Surrey Play and Leisure Consortium.

In the Autumn we will be starting music therapy sessions, drama workshops and continuing our weekly youth clubs, Saturday play schemes, swimming and dance. Even though we are currently away from our building, we are as busy as ever providing sport and leisure activities for children and young people in Woking and Surrey Heath, and very excited about the wonderful opportunities we will provide in the future!

SEN Pathfinder and Other News In the Spring newsletter it was announced that Surrey was successful in its bid to become a Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) Pathfinder. Since then the project has progressed rapidly and the publication of the Government’s ‘Next Steps’ paper has shown there is an intention to bring new legislation within this parliament to improve the experience for children and young people with SEND. The work we do within the Surrey SEND Pathfinder will help to shape this. The focus has been on designing the new 0-25 single education, health and care plan which is more outcome focused, is less repetitive and has greater ownership by children and young people. This is being adapted to create a more relevant version for young people aged 14+.

Work has now begun on developing the integrated assessment process which surrounds this single plan while also looking at the workforce development needed to support this including exploring the role of a Key worker. The aim is to recruit 30 to 40 families from September to trial this new plan and assessment process. The work streams Preparing for Adulthood 14+, Personal Budgets and the Local Offer have also progressed by holding workshops, scoping and starting on identified tasks.

Two successful information events have been held introducing the Surrey SEND Pathfinder to a wide range of people from all agencies and included talks from the Department for Education, Department of Health, the SE7, Family Voice Surrey, the Voluntary & Community Sector and Surrey County Council. For more information you can visit www.SE7pathfinder.co.uk Employability hasbeen running Saturday Job Clubs with funding from both Surrey Children’s and Adults’ Services. One young man had stopped attending school, but with the support from the EmployAbility job clubs he attended two work experience placements and is now employed in an office! Another young man had wanted to work at a local restaurant for a long time but did not have the confidence to apply. However after attending the clubs for a few weeks, he was successfully employed at the restaurant, clearing tables and preparing the cutlery. Needless to say he is now over the moon! For more information about Saturday Job Clubs running from September, contact: EmployAbility: Tel: 01483 519690 or via email: employability@surreycc.gov.uk

Wheels for All! Hello! My name is Matthew Wing and I have recently been appointed as the new Wheels for All co-ordinator for Surrey! Thanks to the support from Surrey Short Breaks for Disabled Children, we have been able to fund 30 adapted bikes which will be used in various locations in Surrey. My role is to help inspire, encourage, train and support all of our users so these bikes are kept busy! Cycling is a fantastic way to meet new people, make friends and to get active. Wheels for All Surrey is the latest in a network of national recognised inclusive cycling projects supported by the charity Cycling Projects. The project is designed and developed over time to encourage steady progression in a fun environment for all levels of experience. The aim is to enable everyone to experience the joy and benefits from cycling, particularly aimed at: •Individuals with restricted mobility who may not be able to use a regular two-wheeled cycle •Children and Young people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders who have severe learning disabilities or behaviours which are challenging Families who want to experience cycling together and who may not currently be able to due to an individual family member’s disability. The projects aim is to develop regular inclusive ride opportunities in Ewell, Guildford and Reigate. However, with the right wheels under us, who knows where we could end up cycling to! Over the coming months I hope to prove that the health benefits of getting on a bike are often only the tip of the iceberg. There are the social benefits – sport and exercise can help you get out, meet people and make friends. There are also enormous personal benefits – everyone feels better about themselves after exercise (honest!) which boosts self-confidence in all areas of life. Achieving a goal, however small, also brings satisfaction.

As well as supporting local inclusive cycling activities the project will also be looking to train parents and volunteers as Wheels for All Leaders. Please do contact me if you or anyone you know may be interested in taking part in the next one day training course. The Wheels for All project has a great opportunity to provide a friendly, safe and fun environment for developing cycling skills for all and to take a lead in opening up new paths and promoting friendly group activities that can inspire others, irrespective of their individual ability or obstacles.

Over 250 families are now receiving their support in this flexible way.

If you receive Direct Payments and have any suggestions or feedback about the system that you would like to share, please contact Family Voice or alternatively send in your comments to Childdps@surreycc.gov.uk and mark your email with ‘Direct Payment Feedback.’ The Childdps team are aware that some families received their Q1 or Q2 payments late this year.
