About this funding
The Time to Live programme provides 12 month grants to carers organisations (usually carers centres) to develop and deliver micro grants schemes for carers of adults (aged 21 years and over), carers of older people (aged 65 years and older) and young carers (caring for children or adults). These Time to Live projects enable carers to access funds and support to help them take short breaks that meet their needs.
A total of £500,000 is available for the 2017 round of the Time to Live programme. Grants are for one year and will be awarded to delivery partners in October 2017.
Time to Live grants are 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.
