VOCAL Wee Breaks

Wee Breaks helps carers arrange some time off from caring and supports carers to plan, resource and arrange the right short break for them.

Service Description

A short break is any form of service or assistance which enables carers to have periods away from their caring routines and responsibilities.

Wee Breaks offers a range of information about short breaks and provides one-to-one practical and emotional support to help carers to organise the right break for them.

Wee Breaks also administers a short breaks grant fund, helps carers to secure other support and make applications to other trust funds and charities.

Wee Breaks works in conjunction with a number of agencies to support carers and help them to live a life alongside caring.
