Norfolk Family Carers - Young Carers Family Breaks

We offer Family Breaks for families with young carers aged under 18, who provide care for a family member needing help due to disability, physical or mental health problem or addiction.

Our Family Breaks benefit young carers and their families by providing the opportunity to relax and enjoy some quality time together.

Ranging between 3-4 days the break will help to build family relationships, improve wellbeing and create happy, lasting memories.

We support the family in finding a break suitable for their needs and provide a holiday pack with information and tips on how to get the most from their time away.

To qualify, families must:

  • live in Norfolk
  • not had a holiday/break within the past 2 years
  • demonstrate they are unable to fund the break themselves and can provide evidence their household income is below £25000
  • provide their own transport to and from their break

Applications by professional referral Only.

Only one break will be granted per family in any two year period.

Breaks must be taken in the UK
