Devon County Council to fund providers who develop innovative replacement care opportunities to enable carers to take a break
Unpaid carers in Devon have told us that they haven’t been able to have a break from their caring role because they’ve been unable to access replacement care for the person they look after.
To help in these unprecedented times, Devon County Council have launched a dedicated Carers Break Fund for any 18+ unpaid carer of adults, for more information visit our website here.
In addition to this fund, Devon County Council have joined forces with NHS Devon to launch a brand-new Replacement Care Innovation Fund which will make grants of between £1,000 and £15,000 available to care providers, personal assistants, and carers themselves who can develop and provide innovative opportunities that will give other carers a break, during COVID-19 and beyond.
If you know an organisation who might be interested in apply for this fund then please pass this information on.
