Service summary

The Ogilvie Charities give small grants to carers enabling them to have a complete break whilst the 'cared for' is receiving respite care.

Further information

Grants are made to support respite holidays for carers. The primary aim is to give a complete break to a carer while the person cared for is receiving respite care. In exceptional circumstances we may assist where the carer and cared for wish to holiday together, provided they are husband and wife or partners, or an adult child caring for an aged parent or vice versa.

Client groups

Applications must be made through a social worker, community nurse or similar professional agency and payment is made direct to that agency.
