Shared Care Scotland - the national charity that works to improve quality, choice and availabilty of short break (respite care) provision in Scotland - has launched their improved online directory of short break and respite care providers.

Getting the right break at the right time is a big priority for many carers. Short breaks help keep families together and can contribute to the health and wellbeing of everyone in the caring relationship. They also help people with care needs to maintain or make new relationships, learn new skills and be included in their community. Shared Care Scotland wants to increase the number of services registered with them, but they need to hear about them. The system has a new 'suggest a service' button. 

So, if you know of a good service that could benefit people, and think they should be on the register - visit and suggest a service
