Take part in our carers survey for 2024

With a new 'right to a break' in development, it has never been more important to put carers voices at the heart of decision-making. Our survey helps us understand what matters most to carers so we can best represent them in our work.

We aim to improve the quality and provision of short breaks in Scotland.

To do this, our small team covers a wide range of activities from information services such as our directory, events and publications through to research and policy work. 

We work closely with other organisations, such as Scottish Government and the National Carer Organisations and we also deliver three programmes of the Short Breaks Fund, as well as our innovative social tourism initiative, Respitality

We support unpaid carers to find balance

Our work ensures that everyone who provides unpaid care has the help they need to take regular short breaks from the demands of their everyday routines.

Parent carer quote

It’s so hard, sometimes, as a parent of a child with additional needs. It’s been brilliant to see our children have fun and make new friends, and to bond, laugh, cry with other parents that have similar challenges.
