£400m Government Funding for Carers Breaks

FinanceThe Government has made £400 million available to Primary Care Trusts to spend on Carers Breaks as part of their Strategy  for Carers.

 

Publishing Carers Breaks Schemes 

The money isn't ring fenced so it's important that the money does get spent on Carers Breaks. We support the Give Carers a Break campaign being run jointly by the charities The Princess Royal Trust for Carers and Crossroads Care to encourage Primary Care Trusts to publish their plans to run their Carers Breaks’ schemes.

Get involved in the funding debate

Why the Concessionary Travel Club?

ActiveCareThrough our ActiveCare project we've been working with leading UK Care Providers, the Local Government Association and the Directors of Adult Social Services through the Putting People First Consortium to show the importance of travel in keeping active and healthy. Our ActiveCare video shows why taking a break is so important.

Why Carers?

HandsBut there are also 6 million unpaid Carers who do invaluable work  on a voluntary  basis often looking after a family member or friend. And more than a milion Care Workers who work for Care Providers.
