Short breaks for carers

How you can get a break from your caring role

A short break is a way of supporting you to have a life outside or alongside your caring role, supporting your health and wellbeing.

Information about short breaks available for you as a carer and how you can access them is available in Health and Social Care North Lanarkshire's pdf icon Short Break Services Statement [760kb] for adult and young carers.

If you are a carer and think a short break would help you, please contact the Short Break Carer Information Service based in Lanarkshire Carers Centre, Airdrie. The service can provide information on the range of short breaks available.

If you are a young carer and would like to find out more about short breaks, please contact North Lanarkshire Young Carers.

The Community Capacity Building and Carer Support Programme invests in activities in each locality in North Lanarkshire to support the needs of local people and their carers. These activities can enable you to access a short break through a range of local activities. For more information, contact North Lanarkshire Carers Together.
