Pilot - Fund for carers of people with PND

The Lanfine Unit is operating a pilot project, offering carers of people using the Lanfine inpatient services an opportunity to apply for respite from caring as an alternative to the overnight inpatient service.

The fund will be available to carers of people with PND across Lothian who meet the eligbility criteria:

  • You are a carer for a person with PND diagnosed before the age of 65
  • Both you and the person you care for live in Lothian
  • You have an up to date Adult Carer’s Assessment and Support Plan which recognises your regular and substantial role as a carer
  • The condition of the person you care for is stable
  • The person you care for is eligible to access the Lanfine Service and currently does so on an overnight basis


In order to apply you simply need to complete a short application form – these can be accessed by contacting Keith Lugton, Carer Support Officer at the Lanfine Unit on 07972248861
