Where to start

Think you need a wee break from your caring routine but not sure where to start?

It starts with you.

Remember when you had time to meet people, go out or do whatever it was you used to enjoy doing? Leisure time is often the first thing that disappears for carers and the last thing they have time for. We can help you make ‘time’ for yourself.

Our directories can help you find activities, accommodation and care providers or funding, freebies and discounts.

If you are looking for ideas then watch our video below or read the case studies at the top to see how other carers take a break.
