PKAVS Respite Opportunities:

Day Clubs for the Supported

Day Clubs for the Supported have lots of benefits - carers can have a much needed break from their role, and the supported have a chance to make friends and engage in something different. Run by our trained staff and volunteers, the service offers wheelchair accessible minibus transport, lunch, refreshments and activities to make sure there's something for everyone. 

We have day club opportunties in Perth and Blairgowrie and provide transport where possible.

If you would like to find out more about the Day Clubs or to arrange a visit, please contact:

Monthly Carers Therapies

We all need time to rest and recharge our batteries - no more so than if you are looking after a loved one. Our monthly Carers Therapies provide some time-out that carers so richly deserve. 

Perth and Kinross offer free complementary therapy sessions to carers who have a carers support plan with Perth and Kinross Council or are registered with PKAVS. Carers will be sent vouchers after a carers assessment then you can read the Approved Providers List below for your information and to choose a therapy that would best suit your needs.

For more information visit the therapies page.

What some carers have said about the therapies at PKAVS:

"Time to relax, improve health/breathing, chance to unwind and re-form self, meet with other carers"

"Relieves stress and relaxes me"

For more respite opportunities and to find out what is on for Carers within your area please go to our 'whats on' tab.

"Making me dedicate 1 hour to myself, switch off, relax - leave feeling more ready to face the week."

"They make me feel relaxed and less stressed and generally feel much better in myself. The company of the other carers before and after the therapies is a great help as well."
