Autism Bedfordshire has been managing the Luton Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) Short Breaks Consortium since 2013.

The Consortium’s services provide significant short breaks support in Luton for disabled children and young people and their families.

Last year (2017/18), through its short breaks services, Consortium members supported 485 children and young people in Luton (aged 0-18), organised 730 short break sessions, and provided 30,793 short break hours.

This year (2018/19) the Consortium has 6 member organisations. Click on their logo for more information.



We also work in partnership with Luton Parent Carer Forum.


The Consortium is funded by London Luton Airport Limited.
