Short Breaks & Holidays for Carers

Short Breaks Services

A number of organisations in York can help you to take some time off from your caring role by offer ing information, advice and support for carers, or acting as a gateway to other services you may need.



Short breaks services include:

  • sitting services where somebody 'sits' with the person you care for, to allow you some time for yourself
  • group meetings with other carers or organised activities
  • support for the person you care for when you go away

As part of an assessment for the cared for person or carers assessment you may be eligible for a short break in the form of a direct payment or personal budget.
