Give a little time - Make a BIG Difference - National Carer Recruitment Campaign

Short breaks are a lifeline to families of disabled children - however thousands of families of children most in need are not getting breaks from caring. This is because a lack of public knowledge about short break caring and a lack of volunteers coming forward to give parents a break from caring and to give disabled children opportunities to do things that other children take for granted.

Most people do not know about the opportunity to become a short break carer. We think more people would come forward if they knew about the big difference they could have on a disabled child and their family by providing short term care on a regular basis - and the fun they would have too.
