The Respite Association

The Respite Association provides funding for short term respite care for carers of the disabled, sick, elderly or terminally ill.

Funding to allow the carer to have a break can vary in amounts up to an average of £400. Breaks can be for a few hours each week to time away from home. Care can take place in the person's home or in a residential care centre.

Although most applicants are referred direct by disability or care organisations individuals may apply direct using the downloadable forms on their website.

It also has two caravans available for carers to have free respite break without the person they care for.  

The caravans are not adapted. Download an application form to apply.
