Short Break Caring

Date of Event:    December 27, 2023

Short Break Carer Alison shares her story.

“There’s so many little things that just make you smile.” That’s how one short break carer has summed up her experience in the role so far.

Alison has been a Short Break Carer for NAHSCP for just over a year, having previously been a foster carer in Edinburgh.

Providing regular midweek and weekend breaks to children in her own home, Alison offers respite to kinship carers and full time foster carers, as well as birth families who are affected by child protection issues such as parental alcohol and/or other drug use or neglect.

You can read Alison’s story in our latest news article online.
