The Short Breaks service provide a personalised, flexible break from caring. Support to the cared for person can be delivered in the home, supporting them to take part in activities in the community or providing support to both the Carer and cared for to participate in activities, short breaks can also provide help with light domestic tasks. Eligibility for this service is aimed to prioritise carers not receiving other forms of support. Below is a short and simple criteria for the CAP Short Breaks Service.

The closure of Crossroads Care East Anglia has had no impact on the CAP Short Breaks Service, which transferred seamlessly from Crossroads to Norfolk Carers Support on the 1st October. They are keen to widen access and increase the uptake of this service – any assistance you can provide in circulating this information and encouraging colleagues to refer into this service / carers to self-access, would be greatly appreciated by the CAP team. They hope to launch a dedicated number for the Short Breaks Service (separate to their Helpline number) in 2016.
