The Respite Association

What we fund:

  • We fund suitably qualified carers to take over so that the usual carer can take a well earned break.
  • Most of our grants are for a few hundred pounds but we are happy to share funding with other sources.
  • Please note that we do not fund the carers break, or anything associated with it, just the caring support.
  • We do offer one week “carer breaks”, see our Breaks For Carers page for the separate application form for this.

If you are requesting support for summer camps at Camp Kef, Camp Horizon, Misgav or Tikva please contact them directly, they have their own forms, which need to be returned directly to the camp not to us.

Most of our referrals come from caring organisations, such as Crossroads, SSAFA or Age Concern, or directly from Social Services on behalf of individuals.

If you do not have contact with such an organisation you can still apply either using the online form above or via our PDF form (click here) which can be completed and emailed, or printed out and posted.

To use this form you need Adobe Acrobat on you computer (which you can download here for free if required)

If you are using Apple or Android devices you need the free ‘Adobe Acrobat’ App which is in the App Store and Play Store.

If you would prefer a paper copy, please email, phone or write (details are on the contact us page)

Please note: If you are an organisation putting someone forward, please use the PDF form (click here), not the online submission form.
