    Are you an adult or young carer living in Fife looking for a break from your caring commitments? Or, do you support such carers through your organisation and think they would benefit from time out from their caring role?

    Well, through the Creative Breaks Fund and Time for Me fund, carers in Fife can apply for up to £500 to spend on anything that would provide them with a short break away from their caring responsibilities.

    Short breaks can make a huge difference to carers and the people they care for by providing the time to rest, to be themselves, to pursue a hobby, catch up with friends or just relax and recharge. For some people a short break is something they enjoy having together (the carer and the cared-for person) and for others it is about enjoying quality time apart.

    The current funding cycle closes on 31 March 2023. For more information, including details on how to apply, please visit www.fva.org/carers

    To share information on these funds within your organisation/community, please access this online leaflet.
