Short Breaks Scheme Wales


About the Short Breaks Scheme 

The Short Breaks Scheme is the grant fund for third sector organisations delivering personalised, flexible and creative short breaks to unpaid carers in Wales.

Funded by Welsh Government, the Short Breaks Scheme for unpaid carers aims to enable 30,000 carers to take a break from caring by 2025.

A range of break options to meet the diverse communities of Wales have been funded through this programme. These aim to improve carer resilience and wellbeing and to support the sustainability of the carer’s caring relationship. 

Accessing a short break 

To apply for a short break, unpaid carers should contact their local provider directly.
