Inverclyde Carers Centre has been providing Emergency Short Breaks funding for Carers since the beginning of April 2020. As restrictions are relaxed and a new normal emerges we wanted to thank our funders again for their ongoing support to unpaid Carers in Inverclyde.  Funds allocated from our own reserves, coupled with awards from Foundation Scotland, Shared Care Scotland, STV Children's Appeal ,Youth Scotland and the SCVO made it possible for us to support over 190 unpaid Carers, to get a short break from their Caring role.
