Short Breaks Provider Survey

Closed 31 Dec 2019

Opened 15 Nov 2019


This survey is about the Short Breaks Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for disabled children and young people in West Sussex. Short Breaks enable children and young people to try new experiences, both with, and away from their siblings and parents or carers, giving them the opportunity to learn new skills, develop their confidence and have fun! Parents and carers also get a break from their caring role (respite). The current Short Breaks DPS ends in 2021.The County Council is looking to redesign and tender a new DPS from April 2021.

Why We Are Consulting

We are asking key stakeholders for information to help inform this work. We will use what you tell us to help: Shape a market engagement session planned for 12 December at Lodge Hill with current Short Break providers and any providers who may be interested in providing Short Breaks in the future. Develop the options and design going forward.
