We continue to offer breaks from caring grants of up to £250 to unpaid carers, looking after a loved one aged 21 or over, with funding from Time to Live. This money can be used for a wide range of activities associated with taking time out from your caring role. Examples include purchasing a subscription for an entertainment service, signing up to an online course, or buying equipment or materials to pursue an interest or hobby. You can also use the money to contribute towards a break away from home, where coronavirus restrictions allow.
For further information and an application form, please contact 0131 665 0135 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please apply as soon as possible as funds are limited.
The application deadline is 30th September 2020.
Our short breaks carer support worker Julie Oswald can also help you identify opportunities to take time out from your caring role, at home or further afield. Please contact Julie on 0131 665 0135 for a chat about taking time out for you.
