Funded Projects

On this page you can see all the projects funded through the Short Breaks Fund. The Scottish Government has made the Short Breaks Fund available to help support and sustain Scottish carers, including young carers and kinship carers, through enabling better access to short breaks or respite care.


Any project labelled ‘Time to Live’  and coloured orange has funding available for individual carers to create their own breaks. Individuals should contact these organisations directly to get details of the application process.
