Stepping Out - Remote & Rural Breaks for Carers
A story by Care for Carers
The project involved taking groups of carers to rural and remote rural parts of Scotland to take part in a supported residential short break. Activities included Forest Walks, Astronomy, Art Workshops, Village Hall Cinema nights, Singing and music, Island tours and exploring the area.
The Makers On Tour
A story by Artlink Edinburgh and Lothians
‘Makers on tour’ provided mutually beneficial respite to carers of learning disabled adults aged 21-35 through community creative activity booked by a simple phone call.
We partnered with community organisations who could continue to include cared for adults to generate more respite for their carers
A story by VOCAL
A range of short breaks activities were run for 140 carers in Edinburgh and Midlothian over the festive period 2019/2020. These included ‘Surviving Christmas’ workshops, complementary therapy, self-directed break vouchers, group trips, a SMART group meeting and events at the Edinburgh Carers’ Hub.
