  • Shared Care Scotland - Short Breaks Fund, Better Breaks

    Created: 15/10/2018

    The programme provides 12 month grants to third sector organisations to develop and deliver short breaks projects and services for children and young people with disabilities (aged 20 and under), and their carers (adult and/or young carers).

    These can include:

    • breaks away;
    • days out;
    •  and/or shorter, regular activities and sessions.

    The activities can be for the children and young people with disabilities, for their carers, or for families to enjoy together. Projects must be able to evidence how their activities will benefit both children and young people with disabilities and their carers, by providing a break from their normal routine.

    These breaks should increase opportunities for children and young people to engage in activities they enjoy, give carers a break from their caring role, and improve wellbeing for all involved.

    Next deadline: 15 November 2018
