Short Breaks

Little Hiccups recognise that if you have a child that has complex needs that it is not always easy to get that much needed short break with your family as there are so many other things to take into consideration.

Families of disabled children are more likely to experience family breakup. But short breaks can help reduce family stress and prevent families from reaching crisis point. It's about enhancing emotional wellbeing, building resilience, and improving life chances. With short breaks, disabled children and their families are doing things that they never before thought possible.

That is why in 2019, Little Hiccups’ 10th Anniversary, we are funding a short trip for ten families. It is our aim to provide a safe, fully accessible holiday that includes all members of the family. There will also be a trained Nurse available at all time so that parents/carers can also have a much needed break in the knowledge that their child is well looked after.

Children remain the responsibility of their parents/carers at all time.

About the Venue

Little Hiccups has hired out 6 lodges for one week in Rosliston Forestry Centre, Derbyshire. Each family will have a 3 day stay.

Set in the grounds of Rosliston Forestry Centre, the 6 luxury lodges, each with their own secluded spot offer a relaxing woodland stay surrounded by birds and wildlife, at any time of the year.
