Free breaks are available for carers across Barnsley.
Barnsley Carers Service has teamed up with Carefree to offer some of its carers a free break.
To qualify for a break carers must be;
- Aged 18 and over
- Full-time upaid carer (30+ hours a week)
- Able to pay for extras (£25 admin fee, transport, food, travel insurance etc
The break is for the carer only. However they are welcome to take a companion, but not the person or persons they care for.
Anyone who thinks they are eligible should speak to their carer support workers to discuss how to apply.
Anyone new to the service should call Barnsley Carers Service on 01226 288772 to refer themselves.
