Written in the carers own words, each highlights the difference a tiny Short Breaks Fund grant has made to their caring situation. Our thanks go to the carers for agreeing to have their story published and for taking the time to speak with Mike Nicholson, author and writer, who has skilfully transcribed their words to reflect the impact the break has had. We know carers often require considerable support and encouragement to ask for a break. The hope is that these stories will help carers realise that it is alright for them to take a time out for themselves and to inspire different ideas about how they might make the most of this time.
