Short Breaks

We know how tiring it can be to care for somebody around the clock, and that it can be hard to entrust the care of that person to others.

Discovery’s short break support offers personalised support for people with learning disabilities and autism, providing respite for them and their families.

Our support is tailored around individual needs, providing bespoke packages. Our service also covers crisis or emergency support, should someone need somewhere to stay at short notice.

We have two short break services: Selwyn House in Yeovil and Northmead in Puriton, near Bridgwater. Both were finalists at the National Learning Disability and Autism Awards 2019, with Selwyn House winning Best Team.
