VOCAL's Short Breaks Fund
Carers in Edinburgh or Midlothian (or carers who have a caring situation in these areas) can apply to VOCAL's fund for grants to purchase short break activities. Guidance, an application form and funding agreement are all available to download from the Short Breaks Fund page.
A short break, sometimes still called respite, is any activity which provides a break from normal living and care routines for the carer and/or the person receiving care.
A short break can cover a multitude of activities designed to suit the carer and/or person receiving care, and may include transport costs, accommodation, leisure activities, supported holidays or a series of short weekly breaks.
