SSAFA Short Breaks

The SSAFA Short Breaks are an important part of SSAFA’s work.  Our siblings and young carers break will take place as usual, but later in the year. The Exmoor Short Break will be taking a slightly different format this year due to the restructuring within the department and as we begin the process of working towards Ofsted registration for the projects.
