Description

Aiming High for Disabled Children (AHDC) is a package of government funding designed to make a real difference to the lives of disabled children and their parents by providing local authorities with additional funding over the next three years to change the way that services are delivered.

A key part of the funding is to increase the availability of short breaks for disabled children - so that they can have new experiences and their parents can have a break. Short breaks can be anything from a few hours to a weekend or a week. Children can be cared for in their own homes or given opportunities to enjoy activities outside home.
