Renfrewshire Carers Centre Parent Support Group is the chosen charity for the Paisley Vespar Club 165 this year.
We were successful with our application to continue with our Creative Breaks Grants; £17,000 is now available from the Time to Live Fund. Carers can be awarded up to £300 to take a respite break of their choice. Over the past two years more than 70 Carers have been awarded money to go on a spa break or purchase an item like an IPad.

BETTER BREAKS HOLIDAY FUN
For children with a disability Carers and their families
This year we have been extremely fortunate to receive funding from Better Breaks (Funding breaks for disabled children and young people and their families) to provide a range of outings during the school holidays. The fund also provided funding for Workers/volunteers to assist where necessary on the trips. During July and August there have been five trips for Parent Carers, Young Carers and children with disabilities as well as their siblings. Below is an outline of the Fund we had during these trips.
