The Creative Breaks funding programme is now open for applications.
Creative Breaks provides grants to third sector organisations working in Scotland to increase the range and choice of short break opportunities for carers of adults, kinship carers, young carers and the people they care for.
The programme will distribute around £1 million of Scottish Government funding in 2015.
The deadline for applications is Noon, Friday 8th May 2015.
You can apply for grant either to develop short break services or for funding to establish your own small grant scheme for carers so that carers can then pay for the short break that’s right for them.
Their maximum grant is £50,000 for one year. Successful applications will receive their grant in September 2015.
