Carers’ breaks for adults: guidance for commissioners and providers

This guidance is for commissioners, providers and others involved in the planning, shaping and delivery of support for adult carers, primarily in England. It will be of interest to commissioners within local authorities (including public health), clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), NHS trusts and mental health trusts. It will also be of interest to a wide range of providers – including those from the voluntary, community, private and public sectors, not just those already providing carers’ breaks. Advice and information for carers is available from Carers UK.
