TIME FOR ME Short Break Grant Scheme has REOPENED
We are delighted to announce that Voluntary Action Shetland has recently been awarded £3203 to continue to support unpaid carers in Shetland to take a break from their caring role.
The money, from Shetland Charitable Trust, is for distributing Time for Me grants of up to £150 to carers who provide a significant amount of caring for someone UNDER 21 years. This is to allow the carer to take a short break of their choice and have some time out from their caring role.
For full information about our Time for Me grant scheme, including details of how to apply, please click HERE.

Due to Coronavirus, many carers have benefited recently from a break at home. Examples of how the money has been spent include massage therapy sessions, staycations, gym membership, meals out, books, baking equipment and pamper days.
