Shared Care Network


In response to the end of Aiming High for Disabled Children in March 2011, Shared Care Network is redefining it’s strategy to reflect the changing needs of the short-break sector. We are looking for core funding support to help us through this development time.

The changes which Aiming High for Disabled Children has produced has radically increased the quantity of short-breaks available but quality has been secondary to this development. It has left clear gaps in the provision of quality training and policy advice to new short-break providers. These new providers are, in the main, outside of the established home based short-break model we have previously focused on.


We will develop our organisation with a new focus on Innovation and lobbying to bring new vigour to the short-break sector. Our project will: Develop Shared Care Network as the organisation which defines and provides structure to the ‘new’ short-break sector. Position Shared Care Network as the organisation fit to lead and influence the sector. Shared Care Network will be a sustainable organisation with varied income streams including self generating income via training and consultancy
