Creative Breaks Grants Update – January 2024

We regret that, due to limited funding for Creative Breaks grants, the 2023/24 Fund is now closed to new applications.  We will continue to process applications that have already been submitted.

We hope to re-open the Fund to new applications for the 2024/25 financial year in March 2024, and further information will be available on our website nearer the time.

Due to the increasing demand for Creative Breaks grants, there will be some changes to the eligibility criteria for this funding in 2024/25.  Unfortunately, this will include limiting the grants to carers who have not received a Creative Breaks grant within the previous 24 months.  Other eligibility criteria will apply and full details will be available when the fund re-opens.

Farewell Agnes

It’s with mixed emotions that we share with you all that our Centre Manager Agnes McMillan has announced that she will be retiring at the end of the year.

Agnes started with the Carers Centre back in November 1999 as an Information and Development worker, working in the Clackmannanshire area.  In 2009 she became Project Manager for the Clackmannanshire service and the Carer Information Strategy project, before stepping into the Centre Manager role in October 2012 – and the rest, as they say, is history! Over the years Agnes has guided us to many, many achievements and has helped grow the organisation into what it is today.

Agnes will be missed by everyone here at the Centre and the wider carer community. So please join us in wishing all the best for a long and healthy retirement!
