  • We provide individual support for people in their own homes and to access community facilities of their choice. 
  • Group activities and support is available for all age groups across the Midlands. 
  • We support people into employed and voluntary placements.
  • We provide specialist services for people with complex health needs or challenging behaviour


Who can access the service?

  • Children and young people aged from birth to eighteen
  • Adults aged 18 - 65 years with an ongoing identified support need 


Where do we work?

Our main office is based in Coventry, but we operate our services throughout Warwickshire, Solihull, Coventry and Leicestershire.

Our story

Take a Break has been in operation since 1996, initially providing a range of services to children and young people with disabilities or life threatening illnesses. In 2002 the service was extended to provide support for adults aged eighteen to sixty five years. The service has continued to grow and now operates across Coventry, Warwickshire, Solihull and Leicestershire.
