Time to Live

The aim of this fund is to support you to access a break in a different way, giving you the chance to say what type of break matters to you. Applications so far have included piano lessons, snowboarding equipment and leisure activities.

Maybe you fancy spending time in the garden, going hill walking, take up sewing or maybe you have something else in mind.


1. Who can access Time To Live?

  • Carers who are registered with Inverclyde Carers Centre.
  • Carers who look after someone aged 21 or older.
  • Young Carers 
  • Carers who have not had a break in the last 12 months.
  • Carers who have not been referred or receiving short breaks from HSCP.

2. What costs can be met?

A maximum of £148 will be made directly to the Carer to ensure they have choice and control over their break.

3. How to apply?

If you would like to apply for this break, please contact us on 01475 735180 or [email protected]. We ask that you know what you would like to do and have a cost for this before hand. Alternatively you can apply online by clicking here.
