Breaks from Caring

Being a carer can be physically and emotionally challenging, and it's important you have the opportunity to take a break from your caring role.

A break from caring may be needed to deal with other family responsibilities or to attend a doctor or dentist appointment. In other situations, a Short Break such as a holiday may be necessary.

Our  Short Breaks Statement (PDF) [1MB]  is for carers living in South Ayrshire. It explains:

  • What Short Breaks are
  • What kind of Short Breaks are available
  • Who can get this type of Short Break
  • How to access a Short Break

Our Short Breaks Statement will be revised on an annual basis or in response to any new development.
