Brings Them Closer Together

Cares for their mum who suffers from anxiety, deafness, kidney disease and has a pacemaker and for her brother who also has kidney disease and anxiety. They care 24/7 and have been caring for over 10 years.

The Carer applied for Short Breaks funding to purchase a one day beauty course, some beauty products and to be pampered by having their hair done, along with their mum. The grant was awarded and since then they have gone on more beauty courses and have started their own beauty business.

Since receiving the funding their own health & wellbeing improved as did their ability to continue in their caring role, where they never had time to themselves before they now run a business. They can also now give their mum free beauty treatments which brings them closer together.
