Who can apply

Who can apply

Take a Break can accept applications from either a parent carer of a disabled child, or from a disabled young person in their own right.

Take a Break can accept one application per household.

Families or young people who are awarded a Take a Break grant will be expected to provide feedback about how they used their grant and the difference it made to them.

Due to limited funding we are not able to accept multiple applications within any round of funding.
