Respite activities with National Star

National Star - Respite

Despite the coronavirus situation we are still providing limited respite services at National Star. Our respite services are suitable for people with disabilities aged 16 – 25 years old. Although many of the young people that use our respite services are National Star students we do accept bookings from people who are not studying with us. 

Many families rely upon our respite services for a well-earned break from their caring responsibilities, knowing that they can relax because their son or daughter is in our safe hands. We make respite as fun as possible for the young people who stay with us.

Due to the coronavirus restrictions many of the social activities are currently taking place within residences and there are fewer opportunities to go out on day trips. We tailor our respite services to meet the needs of individuals. Nursing services can be provided if required.

We are currently taking bookings for February half-term and Easter, as well as the summer holidays.
