Respite Care Application

Respite Initial Application Form


Respite Initial Application Form

This online application form is to provide Camphill Wakefield with a range of information upon which we can decide whether we can provide respite care and at what cost.  You will be advised of the outcome.  A further application form will only be required should there be any change in the individual’s circumstances e.g., change in support/care needs, health, behaviour or medication, etc.

For each individual period of respite care an additional booking form must be completed.  A booking is not finalised until a confirmation agreement is signed by all parties.  

General information


  • A separate booking form will need to be completed for each period of respite care.
  • If further, additional or specific medical/care/support is identified as being required, this will be subject to an additional fee (eg requirement for working night staff, administration of medication or a specialist intervention as per a prescribed clinical protocol by a specified professional).
  • Pocket money of £10 per weekend is recommended to cover any incidental items purchased off site.
  • Students will be required to pay for any meals or activities undertaken off site.
