Hawthorn Brae Breaks

At a time when cost of living is at a record high, for many, the potential of a few days away from usual caring routines appears impossible. Many carers cannot afford a break, but through Hawthorn Brae, we are able to offer stays free to carers.

Story

Hawthorn Brae is a beautiful self-catering cottage set in the surroundings of Blair Atholl. Managed by VOCAL, Voice of Carers Across Lothian, the cottage was opened to enable carers to access a short break.

At a time when the cost of living is at a record high, for many, the potential of a few days away from usual caring routines appears impossible. Many carers cannot afford a break, but through Hawthorn Brae, we are able to offer stays free to carers and the person(s) they care for.

Donations to Hawthorn Brae support the operations of the cottage and enable us to provide more free breaks to carers. Thank you for your support.

About the charity

VOCAL supports around 10,000 unpaid carers in Edinburgh and Midlothian. We work with carers to plan & deliver individually tailored support including work with other agencies, referral to benefit, health, legal & power of attorney surgeries & a range of training & lifestyle management opportunities.
