About this funding
The Creative Breaks programme provides 12 month grants to third sector organisations to develop and deliver short breaks projects and services for carers of adults (aged 21 and over), carers of older people (aged 65 and over), young carers (caring for children or adults), and those that they care for.
The 2017 round of Creative Breaks funding closed for applications on 26 May. More than 80 applications were received and have been assessed. The Grants Advisory Panel met in early September to award funding and all applicants have now been informed of the panel’s decision.
We are running a number of call-in days where unsuccessful applicants can speak to a member of staff from Shared Care Scotland to get feedback on their application and the decision made by the panel. Please call the Shared Care Scotland office on 01383 622462 on one of the dates listed below.

The next round of the Creative Breaks programme is scheduled to open for applications in spring 2018.
