Respitality Scotland aims to connect local organisations that support unpaid carers with hospitality and leisure providers such as hotels, leisure clubs, restaurants, activity centres etc.
The idea is that hospitality and leisure providers, for example, become Respitality Partners by making a ‘gift’ of a short break whether overnight or for a few hours. This enables a Carer plus a companion to have a break away from their caring responsibilities to recharge their batteries and have a little time for themselves.
Respitality is a form of respite for carers. There will be various options in terms of what is available from an overnight stay in a hotel, an afternoon tea, a round of golf, a spa treatment and much more.
A few points to bear in mind when registering for Respitality as an unpaid carer:
