Carers Trust Crossroads West Wales have been granted Welsh Government funding via Amser to offer a limited number of grants for short breaks for unpaid carers in Pembrokeshire up until the end of March.
The following grants are available via their Time Together project:
Micro Grants for wellbeing activities and days out such as a spa day, pamper session, restaurant vouchers, cinema tickets, etc.
Short Breaks Grants for an overnight or 2-3 day mini break which includes a variety of hotel vouchers, holiday cottages and mini breaks.
Please note there is a limited amount of funding, and the grants are aimed at unpaid carers who might not otherwise be able to afford to take a break without accessing a grant. The grants are flexible, and carers have the option of taking the cared for along with them or a friend or another family member. Additionally, the service has a limited amount of funding available to fund replacement care should this be a barrier to the carer accessing a break.
