Due to current staffing issues we are not able to respond to Buzz Network enquiries as quickly as we normally would. We aim to respond to your enquiries within three weeks due to the staffing gaps we currently have. We hope to be able to offer a quicker response as we are able to resolve our present staffing issues.
The Buzz Network is a group for Southampton Parents/Carers of Children and young people with a disability or additional needs. It is funded by Southampton City Council who work closely with the Southampton Parent Carer Forum to ensure it is meeting the needs of families.
Short Breaks provide children and young people with disabilities or additional needs an opportunity to spend time away from their parents, engage in fun activities and enjoy time with their friends. They offer parents and carers a break from their caring responsibilities and time to spend with other family members or to catch up on other daily tasks.
Southampton's Short Break Statement has further information about our Short Breaks Offer.
The MAX Card and MAX Card PLUS has replaced the Buzz Passport. The card will be issued to all children and young people on The Buzz Network. It gives discounts or benefits to the holder and one other person at a range of venues and organisations within Southampton and further afield.
