  • Shared Care Scotland's Short Breaks Fund: Better Breaks

    Created: 04/10/2022, Updated: 06/10/2022

    Shared Care Scotland's Short Breaks Fund: Better Breaks 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, 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.

    Grants are for one year and will be awarded in March 2023.

    Who can apply

    Any third sector (voluntary) organisation operating in Scotland that is a registered charity or a constituted organisation with only charitable purpose(s) and delivering public benefit.

    How to apply

    The deadline for applications is 17:00 on 17 November 2022.

    When to apply

    Application forms, budget templates and full guidance are available on the website. Funders strongly advise that you make use of the support available before submitting an application. Details of the free applicant workshops and phone-in sessions are available on the website.
