Donate a short break to carers
Carers Link delivers the Scottish Government’s Respitality project in Scotland.
A short break from routine for an unpaid carer can take various forms; whether it is reconnecting with a hobby, going for a massage, enjoying an afternoon tea or taking an overnight stay. Whatever the break offered, this provides unpaid carers a chance to recharge, which is vital for their mental and physical wellbeing.
If you are a local business and would like to donate a short break to a local carer, our Respitality page has more information.
We are normally open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5.00 pm, but appointments (by phone, in person or online) out with these hours can be arranged. Currently mail is not being picked up from the office on a regular basis so if possible please email or phone us. During evenings and weekends, if you or someone you know requires urgent social work support, please call 0800 811 505.
