Apply for a Short Break Personal Budget - please complete the new personal budget application form

Activities Unlimited is run by Suffolk County Council. We aim to give disabled children, young people up to the age of 25 years and their families the freedom and flexibility to select the services they want that best match their Short Break needs.

Activities Unlimited has lots of information about Short Break Activities and support in Suffolk. Many of these activities are grant funded and offer different levels of support dependent on the needs of your child. There is a range of activities available; for example, fishing, drama, gaming, Saturday clubs and social groups. We also have Short Break Advisors on hand to help if you need extra advice and support.

Children up to the age of 18 years may be eligible for a Short Break Personal Budget (Short Break Award), which enables us to support families with as wide a range of needs as possible. The amount of your personal budget will vary and is calculated based on the answers you give in your self-assessment application form. The amount is set for each financial year and we use a multi-band financial model.

The first time you complete a form you will be prompted to create a new portal account. Registering for an account is quick and easy, and you only need to do it once. You will need to email supporting documents which is a requirement as part of the application process for example; evidence of disability benefits if you state you are in receipt. Please email this information to and in the subject write the word EVIDENCE and add your child’s name. Your application will not be processed until this information has been submitted.

If you apply partway through the year, the amount you receive will be reduced on a pro rata basis depending on how many months in that financial year are left.

If you require support in completing this form, please contact us and we will arrange a convenient time to call you back. Please make sure you email any supporting evidence of disability related benefits when you complete the application form.
