Short Break begins to re-open

22 July 2020

Keir loving his Short Break return

It was fantastic to see some of our guests return as we gradually begin to re-open our Alan Shearer Short Break service.

Although we're currently only able to welcome back a small number of our guests, we're working really hard to make our service safe for more people to return in the coming months.

It was great to see Keir again, who is one of our regular guests, and he was overjoyed to see our staff again, too. During his stay he took full advantage of the good weather to explore our Woodland Walk and gardens.

“It was with a heavy heart that we made the decision to close our Short Break service as a precautionary measure,” said Director of Care, Amanda Head. “We understand that our service is a lifeline to many people and we're working flat out to make sure we can safely open up to more of our guests as soon as possible. We look forward to seeing everyone again soon.”

Our Short Break manager, Matthew, is contacting all of our guests to update them on the current situation, but, if you would like to get in touch in the meantime, please email:
