We can provide short breaks away for Carers and their families at our caravan in Saxmundham, Suffolk. Designed to give Carers a break away, this can be with or without the person/people you care for.

We purchased our caravan in the summer of 2019 and situated at Carlton Meres Holiday Park.

The Site is open for 50 weeks a year and Parent Carers looking after a young person of school age will be given priority for school holidays.

To access this provision, Carers must have completed a Carers Assessment to establish a need, and to ensure that this is the right break for you and your family.

The Caravan is a deluxe model which sleeps 4 people in a double room and a twin room, there is also a sofa bed to extend the party, for further details on how to access the caravan, please contact our Wellingborough office and not the site itself. 

We ask for a non refundable contribution of at least £200 towards the cost of running and maintaining this provision, such as cleaning and site fees. We will though aim to work with you to overcome any barriers to using this facility, please get in touch to discuss.

Other useful resources are listed below and a Carers Assessment, can also look at your eligible needs as per the 2014 Care Act. Some Carers have received help getting a break following an assessment.
