Thanks for getting in touch.
Unfortunately our short break grant scheme for carers of adults closed recently with all funds allocated. This will reopen again in October unless we receive any additional funding before then when it would open sooner.
In the meantime, I wonder if you would like to register with our service so that you receive any information we are sending out such as our quarterly newsletter. You can do this from our website at www.shetlandcarers.org at the blue sign up section near the bottom. VAS Carers want to support you to manage your caring role and have a lofe alongside caring.
If you have queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
