Break Away is a Self Directed support respite project based in Edinburgh, which has been offering respite to individuals since 2010. We work with people who have a disability who are between 16 and 65, who live with a parent / carers and who have an allocation of respite from the City of Edinburgh Council.
Types of breaks could be:
Have a short break in a care home
Get support to arrange a short break in the community
Arrange your own short break with a Direct Payment
Individuals who use Break Away have a budget assigned to them either as an Individual Service Fund (ISF) which is managed on their behalf by Break Away.
Break Away co-ordinators support people to plan and organise their breaks and find suitable support, matching individuals so they can share the cost of support and develop friendships.
