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 are now being assessed. The Grants Advisory Panel will meet in early September to award funding. Applicants will be informed of the panel’s decision by mid-September.
The next round of the Creative Breaks programme is scheduled to open for applications in spring 2018.
