Carers: Getting a break when you need one

Updated: Nov 13, 2023

As a carer it's important to look after your own health and wellbeing by getting regular breaks from your caring responsibilities.



There are several options for carer breaks and respite care across Hampshire which can help you.


The Family Information and Services Hub run by Hampshire County Council has some useful links for organisations which can help with getting a break.


There is the Take a Break service in Hampshire to support carers.


There is The Shared Lives scheme which is another option to support carers in Hampshire who are looking for a break.


More information about carers breaks can be found on the Hampshire Connect to Support website.


You can also find details about day care centres and other respite opportunities through the Hampshire Council website and the Connect to Support website.
