Kirklees Council and Healthwatch Kirklees recently undertook a survey asking what respite options people access, how well they work in providing a break, and how people would like to see respite breaks provided in the future.

From this, from our ideas, and from information from other areas, we’ve come up with an outline for respite breaks which we believe we need to commission in future. We’d like to run these ideas past carers to see if you think they’ll work for you, and for you to have a bit more in-depth look at them and help us refine them.

This is an important opportunity to help influence future respite provision in Kirklees.



By ‘respite breaks’ we mean any form of support which helps carers get a break. This could be:

Forms of respite: a stay away from home, somebody staying in your own home to look after the person you care for, someone regularly spends an hour or so at hour home with the person you care for, specialised holidays together, doing something fun together

There are lots of possibilities. It’s about giving families a break in a flexible way.



A Carer is someone of any age, who provides unpaid support, time and energy to a friend or family member due to their mental or physical illness, disability, addiction or frailty. Without this support the cared for individual could not cope.
