Need a break from caring?

VOCAL Wee Breaks supports unpaid carers in Edinburgh and Midlothian to take time to breathe, recharge and think about themselves for an hour, a day or longer.

Focused on empowering carers to take time away from their caring roles to be able to continue to carer in good physical and mental health into the future.

Let VOCAL Wee Breaks take you on a journey from where to start and overcoming barriers to exploring what a break looks like for you, co-coordinating replacement care, travel, exploring funding options and much more.
