Applications now due for Creative Breaks

Date: 8th December 2016

We are delighted that for another year we are able to offer grants to parents or carers, who have a significant caring role for an adult with Down’s syndrome, to help them take a break from their daily routine.  The Creative Breaks Fund is now open offering grants of up to £300 to help with the costs of a break for the carer.  This will be the last year that we will be offering these grants as from then Shared Care Scotland are changing the way the funding is distributed.
Our first panel meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 17th January 2017.  As Down’s Syndrome Scotland has a much smaller amount available for grants this year it is likely that the fund will only be open for a short period so if you are eligible please complete an application form and send it to Louise Watt asap.
Please call the office for an application or download it here. If you have any questions please call Louise on 0131 442 8850.
