Right to rest blog

When I take a break, I enjoy having time to myself to read books, going out with my friends and going on trips with my carers service. My service has really done a lot to help make sure we all get the opportunity of a break and even help us find funding to go on holidays away when we can. With the help of the young carer grant and my service, I was able to fund a trip to Italy for me and my mum. It was amazing to get a break away from my caring role and have time to ourselves. Everyone needs time away from their lives, especially those who are caring a lot of the time. Never feel guilty for taking a break you deserve it!
