Make A Difference Break

The Make a Difference grant gives young carers the chance to have a break from caring.  It is vital for carers of all ages to recharge your internal system by focusing on your health and wellbeing.

Carers in Hertfordshire gives carers the chance to access funding for a break from caring, which will have a positive impact on their health and wellbeing.  We call this Make a Difference.  A member of the young carers team will discuss the needs of each individual young carer before deciding together on what will make the biggest difference – it has to be something which has a positive health outcome.  Some breaks for young carers in the past carers have had equipment to pursue a sport, drama activities, a new bike, a drum kit, gymnastic classes, dance lessons and many more.

If you are interested in discussing this further or have any questions please contact us on 01992 586969 or email

We need to speak to all young carers wanting to access this to find out more about you, your caring role and whether a Make a Difference grant is the right thing for you.
