Breaks for Carers

by Antonia


This is a great opportunity for you to get a break from caring, you will need to apply for a fund which you can use in the following ways;

  • pay for an agency, family member or friend to provide care in your home so you can have a social or leisure break;
  • pay someone to provide overnight care so you can have an unbroken night’s sleep;
  • buy or hire devices to help with monitoring and reassurance;
  • help pay for extra support so you can take the person you care for out for a break. This would allow you to enjoy their company without having to worry about their care yourself.

For more information click on the picture above, you have until the 31st of March to apply.
