Sessions will be planned for 6hrs but please be aware, that if they receive a high demand for places like they did for previous holiday clubs, and have continued limited staffing availability, they may have to reduce the sessions to 3hrs to try to ensure that all families that apply have fair and equal access to the support. Please be assured that they will do their utmost to provide a 6hr session if possible as they do understand how important this support is to you and your family. Sessions will be dependent on staff availability and weather and any other unforeseen circumstances.

The guidance below is subject to change in line with AFC and government guidelines. The health and welfare of the children and young people and AFC staff are our highest priority and there will continue be procedures in place for us to limit the risks as much as possible which are as follows: Parents/carers will be requested to notify Shropshire Community Short Breaks as soon as possible if their child/ren, test positive for Covid 19 and must not attend any sessions. All AFC staff/agency workers will wear a facial mask to support C&YP inside buildings. If there is any risk of spreading the virus via oral secretions or first aid is needed to be applied, then staff will have to wear a full facial plastic visor in addition to the facial mask, gloves and apron. Personal care will be undertaken but staff will be required to wear full PPE. Any young person who requires hoisting for personal care will be taken to a changing place to support where available. (If your child / young person requires specialist nursing care please contact us directly). Children and young people will be allocated a worker(s) who will remain with them during the whole session. Social distancing measures will be put into place where possible. Physical intervention is always a last resort but if your child/ren is known to require physical intervention then a full risk assessment will need to be completed on how we can support your child. Sessions will take place in venues and out in the community
