Short Breaks Funding 

Funding is available to carers of adults and children enabling carers to take a break from their caring role.

While traditional breaks may not be achievable at this time, carers can apply for grants to be used flexibly to support activities that can be undertaken in the home, garden or close to where you live.

VOCAL are particularly keen to hear from carers who have not applied before for short breaks funding.

To note your interest please contact VOCAL on 0131 622 6666 or email

The Short Breaks Funds are operated by Shared Care Scotland on behalf of the Scottish Government.
