VOCAL’s Wee Breaks funding for Unpaid Carers
23 February 2023
VOCAL’s Wee Breaks funding allows carers to apply for a grant to fund activities, devices and support, which would give you a break from caring.
From a weekend in the Highlands or a day trip to Edinburgh Zoo, VOCAL can help fund carers to access a break. Their Wee Breaks service is flexible in what a break means and breaks can be taken with or without the person you care for. Carers can apply for:
• An overnight stay at a hotel
• An iPad to watch your favourite TV programmes
• A gym membership
• A voucher for lunch or dinner with a friend
• A weekend away in the countryside with family
All of these breaks will give carers time away from your normal caring routines, and can help improve your physical and mental wellbeing.
