We’re delighted to announce a new partnership with SPACE on a pilot project to deliver the Young Carers Time to Live Programme in Edinburgh, thanks to Shared Care Scotland for this funding through the Short Breaks Fund.

Young carers supported by SPACE – and in need of a break from their caring role – can apply to the Young Carers Time to Live Programme. SPACE are working closely with their young carers to support those with most urgent need to access this funding.

We know that getting out and about is hard at the moment, so Young Carers can use a small grant for things that might help get a break at home or a grant to buy exercise equipment, a musical instrument, an online subscription service, art supplies, or even tuition to up their skills in a favourite hobby.

For more information on the application process Young Carers can contact ycsupportworker@spacescot.org with their name and postcode to support any inquiries.
