Ealing Family Link Scheme

The Family Link Scheme is an Ealing Service for children with disabilities ages 0-18 years, which offers short breaks with an individual carer/family.

The Family Link Scheme offers two services for families - Link Care and Sitting. Link carers provide care based in their own homes (which can include overnight care). Sitters offer care in the child's own home. Both carers and sitters can take the disabled child out into the community if the parent wishes. Sitters can, in some instances, care for the disabled childÍs siblings as well.
