Free Breaks for Carers

Monday 14th January 2019

Angus Carers is continuing to work in 2019 with Carefree (formally Carefreebreaks) to offer short breaks to carers.

Carers can take a companion, but not the person they care for.

To qualify for a break a carer must be:

  • Aged 21 or over
  • A full-time unpaid carer (35+ hours per week)
  • Able to arrange interim care 
  • Able to pay for extras (admin fee-£25, travel, food etc.)

If you would like to find out more, please visit the Carefree website at If you would like to be referred or have any questions, please contact

It is helpful if any carer wishing to apply has an email address, as all correspondence from Carefree will be online.
