Are you a carer? Do you provide unpaid help and support for someone?

A carer is someone who, without payment, provides help and support to a partner, child, relative, or friend who could not manage without their help.  You might help them because of an illness, mental health issue, addiction, frailty, disability or learning disability.

Carers may or may not live with the person they look after.  Many carers do not see themselves as carers.  Young people may be trying to cope with looking after a parent, sibling or other family member.

Short Breaks for Carers


Time to Live

GAMH are delighted to share we have been successful in securing another year of Short Breaks funding from Shared Care on behalf of the wider Glasgow City Carers Partnership. Applications are open from October 1st 2021- 30th September 2022 and this funding will support unpaid carers to take a well-deserved break from their caring responsibilities. Unpaid carers can contact their local Carers Centre to apply.

Scotspirit Holiday Voucher Scheme

GAMH are excited to be one of the delivery partners of the Scot Spirit Holiday Voucher Scheme on behalf of Shared Care Scotland. The scheme will support unpaid carers to access a subsidised overnight break or day out from participating vendors.
GAMH will work with our partners in the Glasgow City Carers Partnership to reach as many unpaid carers as possible especially those affected most by the pandemic restrictions. Unpaid carers who are receiving support from their local Carers Centre can apply.  The fund will be open from 21st September 2021 and all breaks have to be taken by December 2022.
