Short Breaks Project

Would a short break (respite) benefit you as a Carer/Young Carer?

Could a regular "time out" short break activity be supportive to you as a Carer/Young Carer?

Do you struggle to access a break due to the needs of the person you care for or the extra costs involved?

The Positive Benefits of a Short Break might include:
  • A break from day-to-day routines
  • A chance to enjoy new experiences and meet new people
  • Time to rest and recharge batteries
  • Opportunities to maintain friendships
  • Time to pursue personal interests, leisure or cultural activities
  • Improved health and well being
  • Greater independence and self confidence
  • Strengthened relationships
