This project provides short breaks to children with disabilities in a modern purpose built centre situated in Quarriers Village approximately 2 miles from Bridge of Weir.  The aim of the service is to provide regular, planned and enjoyable short breaks to children and young people aged from 5 - 18 years, who have a learning disability.  This gives their parents/carers opportunities for a break from the pressures of caring and to spend time focusing on other members of the family or parts of their lives.  It gives the young people who come to the unit a safe, homely environment where they can meet other young people and take part in social and everyday activities as well as receive high quality care.
