 To understand parent and teenager views of a particular respite service

Key Notes/Findings:

  • Parents valued meeting other families using the service and opportunities for rest and leisure, they otherwise could not achieve while their child was at home

  • Teenage clients valued choice equipment access, quality of staff interpersonal skills and opportunities for ‘typical’ leisure activities
