Last year many of you contributed to the Short Breaks survey we organised with Dorset County Council. The results were highly informative and have been very useful. We are pleased to say that the survey is again being used by DCC - this time in connection with their planning for new contracts and arrangements for funded short break services across the county due to start next April. The survey results are also being made available to all potential organisations so they can see exactly how short break services work for you, what problems you encounter and what you want for the future. So, just a big thank you again to the over 200 families who took part - your input really does matter and play an important part in developing services.
