Gwyn Dowr - Short Breaks

Gwyn Dowr gives ‘short breaks’ or respite to families with a child or young person, who has a learning disability and/or physical health needs.  Gwyn Dowr is situated in Camborne. It is a detached dormer bungalow in a quiet residential area, but is a short distance from the main shopping area.  The house supports up to 2 children or young people, per stay (all downstairs).  Outside, there is parking for 2 cars and a  wheelchair accessible ramp leading to the front door.

Several nurses will work on the unit to ensure your child/young person has the
level of nursing support they need.

We are able to offer support to children from the age of 3, up to young people aged 18. The children and young people have complex physical health needs and / or behaviours that challenge.
