Time 4 You – Grants for Carers

Posted on: June 9, 2021

Over six million people in the UK are carers, looking after a rela-tive or friend. Regardless of how much care you provide or the type of support you give, caring can impact on your health and well-being. 

Caring means something different to everyone; one thing carers tell us all the time is that they cannot keep going without a break.

Essex Carers Support are inviting carers (18+) who live in the Essex County Council area to take part in our project. They would like to talk to you about the importance of self-care and assist you in planning some positive and rewarding time for yourself; something that reflects your own interests and is of your choosing. This can be done individually or, if preferred, can include the person/persons you care for.

Grants up to £100 are available to help you achieve Time 4 You. See Below for examples:

Find more examples on the Essex carers Support website or get in touch for a chat about what you’d do with some ‘Time 4 You’:
