Take a Break Scotland


Take a Break is Scotland’s short breaks fund for carers of disabled children, young people and their families.  Take a Break grants can be used for a break away, towards leisure activities or outings; sports equipment and much, much more.

We provide grants to parent carers (unpaid carers and eligible kinship carers) of disabled children and young people, aged 0 to 20, who have complex additional support needs. 

The aim of this fund is to improve unpaid carers’ quality of life, health and wellbeing by providing cash grants to help them access a short break from the day-to-day routine of caring. Take a Break grants can be used flexibly, to help meet the interests and circumstances of the carer.
