About ISBA

History of ISBA


The first International Short Break Conference was held in the Canadian city of Thunder Bay, Ontario in 1995. This initiative was taken in an effort to create an international network for the exchange of knowledge and working practices, focused on Short Break Care for the disabled and their families. The central theme of the Conference was “Best practices in caring”.

Since then there have been 8 further conferences around the world, usually every two years. Our 10th conference will be in Edinburgh, Scotland between 13th – 15th September 2016
