Take a Break Funding
Applications can be accepted from 30th July 2012 until 31st December 2012 or earlier if all funds have been allocated.
Take a Break is part of the £2million ‘Better Breaks Development Fund’ which, under The Scottish Government, aims to improve the provision of, and access to, quality short breaks for disabled children and their families, especially where children and young people have multiple support needs.
Take a Break is grant funding available for families living in Scotland. A ‘take a break’ grant can be used towards a break, outing or sport activity or other activity in the UK or overseas. The aim of the fund is to support carers, including kinship carers and their families to take a break improving their physical and emotional well being, enabling them to enjoy life and opportunities outside of caring. As ‘take a Break’ is a limited fund we anticipate the average grant to be in the range of £200-£500.
You can find out more by clicking on the ‘How to apply’ and ‘Grants’ section on our website
The take a Break scheme is administered by the Family Fund. The Family Fund is a registered charity and is the UK’s largest provider of grants to low income families raising disabled or seriously ill children and young people.
