Carers’ breaks and respite services: Rapid review summary

28 February 2019

Drawing on a focused literature review of recently published research combined with selected Carers UK Breaks Survey data, this summary report outlines key themes and issues relating to the provision of carers breaks and respite in England since the introduction of the Care Act 2014. Findings are informing the development of guidance for commissioners and providers and the dissemination of advice and information tool for carers being produced by SCIE and Carers UK respectively.

A presentation based on an earlier version of this paper was presented at the Reference Group for discussion on 12 February. The guidance will include examples of good practice and current services collated from a SCIE Call for Practice.
