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.

2018 update, we have now started to book Carers into the Lodges for this year who are on our Waiting list. When this has been completed we will look at maybe opening the waiting list again.

The Lodges are Available for Private Hire with prices starting from £350 per week (£250 in March). Photo's and availability can be seen at the following:

Two Bedroom - Osprey (formally known as Forest)

Three Bedroom, ramped access with wet room - Mallard (formally known as Kingfisher)

We continue to focus on 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

    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.
