Creative Breaks Fund 2017

Creative Breaks Fund for 2017

 Support in Mind Scotland will be running the Creative Breaks Fund in 2017. The programme was launched on Friday 3rd February and the fund is part of Shared Care Scotland’s Time to Live Short Breaks scheme.

This year the scheme is being run over two rounds and applications can be accepted between 3rd February and 5th May.  Carers of someone with a mental health illness are encouraged to choose an activity which is easily accessible and of longer term benefit.  Many carers in previous years have benefitted from smaller scale leisure interests such as a gym/swimming membership, a family gardening project, cinema-pass or joining sewing or singing clubs and we hope that more carers select similar which will in turn enable more carers to benefit from an award.  Various activities are suggested in the pack. Please note that applications require a statement of support, and carers of someone with dementia are not  eligible to apply due to funding conditions. The application form and details about how to apply are available by contacting Support In Mind on  0131 662 4359/2284 or visit The full pack is available here.
