Inverclyde Carers Centre is please to announce our participation in the ScotSpirit Holiday Voucher Scheme.

The ScotSpirit Holiday Voucher Scheme (the Scheme) is funded by Scottish Government and forms part of the Scottish tourism recovery programme. The new Scheme will enable low income families, unpaid Carers and disadvantaged young people to enjoy a two or three night subsidised break or day out in Scotland. The Scheme offers a contribution towards a holiday stay in hotels, campsites, bed and breakfasts, hostels and guest houses or day visit activities in Scotland from October 2021 to December 2022.

The key objectives of the scheme are :

  • To stimulate off-peak domestic breaks and day visits for low-income families, unpaid Carers and disadvantaged young people by offering subsidised breaks in Scotland.
  • To support the tourism and hospitality sector to recover when the pandemic lockdown measures have lifted and offer new target group and marketing opportunities.
  • To offer opportunities for improved well-being and greater participation in community life for the target groups.
