PKAVS Carers Hub are delighted to announce that we have been awarded funding from Shared Care Scotland's Short Break Fund to continue the Time4Me Fund.
We are now inviting unpaid carers to apply!
This fund was very well received last year with over 70 applications submitted. Time4Me Funding has enabled us to help improve the range, choice and availability of personalised and creative short breaks (see 'What is a Short Break?' for more info) for unpaid carers and the people they care for in Perth & Kinross.
The desired outcomes of this fund are as follows:
Funding is available from October 2017 to September 2018, however, the fund may close earlier if the entire allocated grant is spent. Carers can apply for up to £250 from the Time4Me Fund.
Unpaid carers applying for funding must meet the following criteria:
Adult carers of children and young people with disabilities aged 20 years and under are not eligible for individual grants from the Time4Me Fund. The Scottish Government provides separate funding for carers of children and young people with additional support needs via the Family Fund’s Take a Break Scotland programme.
Kinship carers are not eligible for individual grants from the Time4Me Fund as they are eligible for kinship care allowances provided by local authorities and, as such, are not considered unpaid carers.
If you have any questions or require help completing the Time4Me application please contact Marthe Handling on 01738 567076 or email Marthe.Handling@pkavs.org.uk
