Do you need a break?
Have you heard of this scheme
Did you know that Carefree links eligible Carers to donated breaks? You can self-refer directly OR
Credu Connecting Carers can refer you (it skips some steps).
If this isn't the right fit for you, but you're looking for some help to have a break from caring or a manageable caring role, please get in touch and ask about the Creative Respite Project.
Most of us know that we preform at our best when we are rested, yet how many unpaid carers actually take their own advice and rest? There are all sorts of reasons why we don't take a break many of which relate to those we care for and how it impacts on them. Sometimes though we have to take care of ourselves in order to look after those we care for.
