A story by VSA Aberdeen City
We provided grants directly to carers who live in Aberdeen city
What Creative Breaks did
Publicity leaflets and applications were compiled and circulated to carers and professionals via GP's, health professional SW, Carers staff. These were readily available in the Carers Centres, Carers Point at the Royal infirmary, GP practices across the city and at the local Health Village.
Carers Support and Development Workers (CSDW) supported staff to complete and submit the applications. Decision making panels were established and consisted of carers, staff from health and SW and other third sector partners.
