Time out or a short break for you

What does it do?

There are a number of organisations in Bury that can provide services to help you to take some time off from your caring role. They offer information, advice and one-to-one or group support to carers and can act as a gateway to other services that can help carers to get the help and support they need.
There are a wide range of carers breaks services in Bury including:

  • Sitting services that could include somebody to 'sit' with the person you care for, to enable you to have some time for yourself in the daytime or evening.
  • Group meetings with other carers or organised activities.
  • Additional support for the person you care for when you go away.

There are also a range of leisure and social activities that are aimed at carers, this could be anything from support groups and pamper days to craft sessions and coffee mornings.

Who it is for?

Providing a break from the pressures of caring is a vital part of supporting quality of life for both carer and the person being cared for.
