Bedeburn offers high quality short break service to families with children with SEN and disabilities from aged 6 years to their 18th birthday.
Respite for families and carers is at its heart. We have involved young people, their parents and carers in the creation of the service.
Our residential centre in the west of Newcastle has 6 ensuite bedrooms available to people and offers an integrated service to children and young people with a variety of SEND and complex needs, who will use it between 12 days to 32 days in a year. It is open all year, except 5 days during the Christmas / New Year period.
Bedeburn is the result of partnership working between Newcastle City Council, the National Health Service, Thomas Bewick School and the Compass Trust. It replaces Cheviot View short break service.
Families who would like their child to access the service should discuss this with their social worker who can advise you about the entry criteria and referral process.
