Warren Park Overnight Short Break Provision - update

Warren Park Overnight Short Break Provision - update

We have been informed by Action for Children that Warren Park will not be reopening after 11 February. The service has been closed since the end of November 2020. Parents and carers may have received direct communication from Action for Children regarding this matter.
 
We wrote to parents and carers in December following communication from Action for Children that they have decided that they cannot fulfill the contract for a short breaks services at Moor Lane. As a result, Achieving for Children is having to consider other providers, meaning at this time we are unable to offer an overnight short break service in Kingston as the contract for Warren Park short break service has also come to an end. 
 
We will continue to support families by offering a bespoke package of support; this may be via additional direct payments or spot purchasing from other providers.
 
We are working hard to ensure that the new centre at Moor Lane is ready to open in Spring 2021. And as soon as we have a confirmed opening date we will write to all families and discuss plans for all children and young people about the new site.
