This presentation describes the findings of a study into unpaid carers' experiences of short breaks from caring. The study explored, from the carers' perspective, the benefits of short breaks (provided by formal services and family and friends), good practice in planning and provision, and areas for improvement. Iriss, Shared Care Scotland, Coalition of Carers in Scotland and MECOPP worked together on the research which involved a Scotland-wide survey, focus groups and interviews. The Rest assured? full report and summary are freely available.
