Respitality break for carers is currently on hold in these unprecedented times. This is a very challenging time for the hospitality and tourism sector in Scotland, and we at PKAVS Carers Hub wanted to let you know that we are thinking of you and send you our very best wishes.
Respitality Scotland aims to connect local organisations that support unpaid carers with hospitality and leisure providers such as hotels, leisure clubs, restaurants, activity centres etc.
The idea is that hospitality and leisure providers, for example, become Respitality Partners by making a ‘gift’ of a short break whether overnight or for a few hours. This enables a Carer plus a companion to have a break away from their caring responsibilities to recharge their batteries and have a little time for themselves.
Respitality is a form of respite for carers. There will be various options in terms of what is available from an overnight stay in a hotel, an afternoon tea, a round of golf, a spa treatment and much more.
A few points to bear in mind when registering for Respitality as an unpaid carer:
Allocation of Gifts:
Your name will go on a database and ‘gifts’ will be assigned on a first come first serve basis, depending on your availability and what the break entails.
If you are a business/hospitality/leisure provider and would like to donate a gift to provide a break for unpaid carers in Perth and Kinross then please contact Erman at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01738 567076.
