Wee Break Midlothian manages a number of funds that you may be eligible to apply for. You can apply for anything that would give you time for yourself and a break from your caring role.
Here are some ideas based on previous carers’ choices:
• A shed so you can continue your hobbies if you are unable to leave your house.
• Someone to spend time with the person you care for while you go to a class or group.
• A course of complimentary therapies.
• Money to help set up an activity or time away with friends, for example to pay to rent a hall for
a group, or a pamper weekend with friends!
