Shared Care Scotland was delighted to have the opportunity of hosting the 10th International Short Break Association conference in Edinburgh in 2016. We were fortunate to have the support of many organisations in the planning of this event, including Iriss who worked closely with us on designing and carrying out this modest, but we hope useful piece of research. Thanks to Iriss we also have an audio record of our keynote contributions which are available to download on the Iriss FM website.
Before and during the conference, delegates, workshop contributors and keynote speakers were invited to share their knowledge on how people and organisations in their countries have overcome the barriers faced when trying to access short breaks. Having such a wide range of organisations and countries represented provided us with a unique opportunity to compare different experiences, and to highlight themes and good practice examples that can be further explored at future ISBA conferences.
