Short Breaks Fund - Creative Breaks for Carers

VOCAL is administering a short breaks funding programme and is currently accepting applications.

The fund provides support to carers and the people they care for and can be used to allow the carer to get a short break from their caring responsibilities.

In order to qualify for this funding the cared for person must be over 21 years of age and the unpaid carer must be providing more than 20 hours of practical help and support each week.
