About time to live
About this funding
The Time to Live programme provides funding to carers organisations (usually carers centres) to develop and deliver micro grants schemes for carers including adult carers, parent carers and young carers. These Time to Live projects enable carers to access funds and support to help them take short breaks that meet their needs. This funding is provided by Scottish Government.
£2.5m has been made available from Scottish Government so that carers can access local funds to take a short break between April 2023 and March 2024.
Time to Live funding is awarded to one delivery partner in each local authority area in Scotland. This is usually the carers centre or another third sector organisation that supports unpaid carers in that area.
Shared Care Scotland invites the relevant agency in each local authority area to apply for Time to Live funding. As such, this is not an open competition for funding.
