I am lucky to have been granted a carers break.But I just wish it could be for longer,than two nights.If hardly gives me time to unpack my case before I have to pack up .we all work hard enough to card for our loved ones.So why can't us carers have more funding?regards Amanda h

Funding all depends om where you live. Some local authorities don't give any. Is yours 2 nights once a year or more often.

I used to think B of Poole were quite generous giving a grant of £300 to spend how you liked so I eeked mine out by staying somewhere cheap . At the end of my 10 years of caring though, they would happily have taken my home of 50 years away from me to put in their own coffers! Carers beware !
