Shared Care is a service run by Bradford Council offering short breaks to children with complex disabilities and health needs.
The service is provided by ordinary people, families and individuals from all areas of Bradford, who have someone to stay with them for a day, overnight or for a weekend, or sit in the disabled person’s home to give their carers a break.
Shared Care gives the people with disabilities who use the scheme the opportunity to meet new people, have fun, try new activities and gain independence. At the same time families get a welcome break from caring.
