Application form for Short Breaks

We are looking for a number of families to pilot the use of direct payment cards, rather than vouchers. This should increase both flexibility and number of providers that you can access. If you would like to take part in this pilot please apply in the usual way and tick the box that indicates you would like to be part of the pilot. We will select the first 100 families that put themselves forward. It will take longer to issue the direct payment cards and it will take a minimum of 8 weeks for the cards to be issued from the point of application. Please only apply if you are willing to wait a little longer this year for your short break funding.

Short Breaks Application Form

Please do not apply for vouchers unless you have a finalised Education and Health Care Plan produced by Milton Keynes Council.  If you are currently going through the process of getting a plan put in place you can apply for vouchers after you receive the final version. If you do not live in the MK area please contact your own local authority to find out what provision they have for short breaks.
