Take a Break applications now open

Funded by the Scottish Government, Take a Break provides grants to parent carers (and eligible kinship carers) of disabled children and young people, aged 0 to 20, who have complex additional support needs.

The aim of this scheme is to improve unpaid carers’ quality of life, health and wellbeing by providing cash grants to help them access a short break from the day-to-day routine of caring. Grants can be used flexibly, to help meet the interests and circumstances of the carer.
