About Us

Our Vision and Plans

A Scotland where everyone who receives support or provides unpaid care can live a full and satisfying life, with the assistance they need to take regular, quality breaks from the everyday demands of their caring routines.” In Scotland it is estimated there are over 650,000 people who care for a family member, partner or friend, who may be ill, disabled, or dependent on drugs or alcohol. Short breaks provide a much needed release from the physical and emotional demands of the caring situation and help promote health and well-being.

Our Services

We offer a range of services that aim to improve the quality and provision of short breaks in Scotland. These include conference, workshop and training events, information services, publications, news updates, briefing papers, and research reports.
