Wedgewood

What does it do?
Wedgewood House is a 10-bedded Unit, which provides 24hr Specialist Short Break care for up to 7 days a week. Specialist Short Break care is where a child comes to us to be looked after by professional staff, while getting the chance to socialise and take part in stimulating activities. This also gives the parents/carers a break from caring and gives them some time to themselves. The type of Specialist Short Break Care offered ranges from day care, overnights, weekends, mid-weeks and teatime visits. The Unit also runs summer holiday activities as an additional family support, for children who currently receive a Specialist Short Break Service. All the bedrooms have specialist beds for maximum comfort and safety and ceiling track hoists for children with physical disabilities. Wedgewood House is set in its own grounds with some secure outdoor play areas and play equipment. It has been specifically adapted to meet the needs of children and young people with disabilities and/ or complex health needs.

Who is it for?
The children and young people who come to us are between 5-18 years old. They all have a learning disability; some have a physical disability. We cater for individual diets and respect the religious and cultural needs of our children and their families. Our full-time cook prepares meals to the individual requirements of each child following a particular diet, e.g. halal, vegetarian food and allergy-related diets. All staff have been trained in being able to care for children who are gastronomy fed.

How do I access it?
