We’re here to help
The Short Breaks Fund team is here to help. Our aim is to support funded organisations to deliver the best possible outcomes for carers and those that they care for. We can provide support in a number of different ways.
Resources and toolkits
We have a range of free resources and tools to help organisations plan, evaluate and sustain their short breaks projects. These were all developed in partnership with organisations that have been funded by the Short Breaks Fund so they are tailored to the needs of organisations we work with. We also publish research and other relevant resources about short breaks.
Events and workshops
We run a range of different events and workshops throughout the year: from applicant workshops in the spring and autumn, to thematic good practice and knowledge sharing events, and action learning sets (‘think tanks’). For details of upcoming events, go to our events page.
Other funding available
We recommend Funding Scotland, SCVO’s free online search engine for organisations looking for other sources of funding.
