Short Breaks

Rossie has been successful in winning a place on the Scotland Excel Framework Agreement to deliver Short Breaks services. We are delighted that we can now support primary caregivers by providing them time for themselves to recharge and refocus, knowing that their young person will receive safe, stimulating and individualised care.


Rossie has recently begun to welcome young people into our Short Breaks service. We have received very positive feedback from carers on their experiences of the service, and they have commented most favourably on the care and nurture provided by our staff.  Young people have participated in, and enjoyed a wide range of fun and learning activities and experiences, while making new friends.

Our skilled, professional and experienced teams are able to support young people with a range of needs and vulnerabilities.  They also ensure young people and their carers maintain their relationships and feelings of belonging, while giving both some personal time and space.
