Over six million people in the UK are carers, looking after a relative or friend. Regardless of how much care you provide or the type of support you give, caring can impact on your health and well-being. Caring means something different to everyone; one thing carers tell say all the time is that they cannot keep going without a break.

Through its Time 4 You initiative, Essex Carers Support is inviting carers (18+) who live in the Essex County Council area to take part in a project. The organisation would like to talk to carers about the importance of self-care and assist in planning some positive and rewarding time for yourself; something that reflects your own interests and is of your choosing. This can be done individually or, if preferred, can include the person/persons you care for. Grants of up to £500 are available.
