What is ScotSpirit?
The ScotSpirit Holiday Voucher Scheme is focused on supporting individuals and families who have been particularly adversely affected by the impact of the pandemic, while at the same time providing financial support to the Scottish tourism sector. The Scheme is funded by Scottish Government and forms part of the Scottish tourism pandemic recovery programme.
The scheme enables unpaid carers to enjoy a 2-3-night subsidised overnight break or day out in Scotland. The scheme offers a contribution towards an overnight stay in a bed and breakfast, camping/ holiday park, guest house, hotel or hostel or day visit activities in Scotland.
Who is eligible?
This scheme is aimed at unpaid carers (including young carers) who have been adversely affected by the pandemic. You must be registered with a local support organisation, such as Carers of East Lothian (CoEL), to apply.
If you have already received a break through the ScotSpirit Holiday Voucher Scheme, through another organisation, you will not be eligible to apply again.
