What is ican2?
ican2 was created as part of Telford & Wrekin Council's short breaks pathfinder project ran from April 2008 to March 2011.
The ican2 Short Breaks programme is about providing activities for children and young people living in Telford and Wrekin with a disability or additional need - children who have, or would experience, difficulty attending groups, clubs or facilities without support. Short Breaks covers a wide range of provision from universal (open to all without the need for any assessment or specialist support) through to specialist (for example hospices and overnight residential care).
Children and young people are eligible for short breaks if they have a physical or learning disability, a hearing or visual impairment. It includes children with autism and Asperger’s Syndrome and children who may have challenging behaviour as a result of their learning disability. It also includes children who have complex needs and who may have palliative, life limiting or a life- threatening conditions.
Each child is however a unique individual, with their own personality, needs and strengths and wishes and feelings. They are entitled to make the same choices as any other child. In addition family circumstances vary and we aim to ensure that short breaks provision to individual children reflects their particular needs.
