Inverclyde Carers Centre is pleased to announce that we have been successful in our Time to Live funding bid again this year.

Time to Live funding is aimed to provide micro grants to Carers of adults (aged 21 years and over), and young Carers (caring for children or adults). The Time to Live grant enables Carers to access supports available to help them to take a short break from their caring role.

A short break is quality time where Carers and those they care for can recharge their batteries and catch their breath. It may be a few hours to pursue a hobby or activity, catch up with friends for lunch, read a book or it might be a few days away, either together or separately. It might be having time apart, or having quality time together away from the daily routine.

Who can access Time to Live breaks?

  • Carers who are registered with Inverclyde Carers Centre.
  • Carers of adults (aged 21 years and over), and young Carers (caring for children or adults). 
  • Carers who have not accessed short breaks through ICC in the last 12 months.
  • Carers who have not been referred or receiving short breaks from HSCP.
  • Short breaks are available to Carers of all ages, gender, ethnicity, religion, race, sexual orientation, disability, caring responsibilities, economic and political affiliation. 

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.
