  • provide advice and support to other professionals about short breaks and other local services
  • help families identify the outcomes they and their child want to achieve
  • take short break requests to panel as required
  • undertake reviews of packages of support as required
  • co-produce assessments with families to identify levels of short break packages
  • agree with families’ support plans which identify which services and support best meet their identified needs
  • work closely with colleagues across SEND services to support families effectively, including referring families to other professionals where required
