Carer Programme

Our Carers’ programme provides carers a period of rest away from their caring roles through days out.  In the UK around 7 million people are unpaid carers for family members or friends who need help due to disabilities.

We work to support carers and never underestimate how difficult life can be as a carer. Support for adult carers is important and we provide this support through the projects detailed below.

We have temporarily closed the Holiday Carer Grant Programme due to the high number of applications we are currently processing.

We aim to re-open the programme on 30th May.

A little respite in a box!

3H adapted the way we supported carers through the lockdown by sending out respite hampers to carers throughout the country. It was so successful that we continue to proivde our hampers to carers who are registered with us so they can have a little respite at home.
