Eligibility and How you can apply:

If you are a Carer/Young Carer living in Mid Argyll, Kintyre and the Isles (Islay, Jura and Gigha), then you are eligible to make an application to the Time to Live Fund. Contact us for more information. The completed application form is reviewed by the Panel to make a decision. If the application is successful, the agreed Short Break will take place. After the short break there will be an evaluation process which will assess how the break has benefited you.
