How we help carers Breaks for carers Holiday Lodge Holiday Homes, Respite for Carers We have run this successful service for Carers since 2011. This was made possible with funding from Northamptonshire County Council Aiming High monies and a start-up grant from NHS Northants. We were able to purchase two Lodges also in partnership with Lifestyle Living (a Leisure Site and Homes Company). One lodge is accessible for those with disabilities. Unfortunately our free places are now full and we have closed our waiting list until further notice. We are focusing our Silver Jubilee on raising money to increase our holiday capacity for carers. Detail of our appeal can be found here. We will always advise on other services that may be able to help with a break. Useful contacts include Carers Trust Holiday Scheme Disabled Holiday Directory Grants for Carers, Ogilvie Charities Trust Kiloran Trust, respite for Carers 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.
