Being a carer is not a job you apply for. We know.
We also know that it’s also one of the hardest jobs you might have to do. And that’s why it’s so important that you get the support that’s needed too.
A short break for carers
brainstrust has recently been working with After Umbrage, a charity dedicated to providing free, short breaks for anyone who has been looking after family members or loved ones with a life limiting condition. The charity’s founder Tara Belcher set up the charity after caring for her father through cancer and now wants to help carers who are facing a terrifying brain tumour diagnosis.
The charity is offering carers in our community free short breaks at the lovely Kingham Cottage, which is just 5 minutes out of Bath, situated in the stunning countryside.
Look after yourself
Carers can stay in Kingham cottage, which sleeps 4, for a maximum of 4 nights completely free of charge.

Also, we’ve recently launched our brand new regional support directories for people living with a brain tumour. Each guide has a dedicated section about support for carers, as well as respite services similar to the above. Click here to read more and to download your guide.
