Creative Breaks is funded through the Short Breaks Fund by the Scottish Government as part of their commitment to the development of short breaks for the benefit of carers and those they care for. The purpose of the Creative Breaks Grant Programme is to improve the range, choice and availability of short breaks so that carers and the people they care for have a better quality of life and feel better supported in their caring relationship. Lanarkshire Carers Centre has been awarded funding by the Creative Breaks Grant Programme to fund flexible breaks for carers as part of the range of services and support that is currently offered to carers in Lanarkshire. This funding is available from November 2015 until October 2016. All applications will be assessed by a panel who meet regularly throughout the year. Applications are made by contacting your local Lanarkshire Carers Centre Carer Support Worker (or CLASP project in Wishaw/Shotts) or by contacting the centre in Hamilton or the Airdrie base.
