Amser, Short Breaks Scheme Wales

About Amser 


Amser, Welsh for ‘time’, is the grant fund for third sector organisations delivering personalised, flexible and creative short breaks to unpaid carers in Wales.

Funded by Welsh Government, Amser is part of the Short Breaks Scheme for unpaid carers and aims to enable 30,000 carers to take a break from caring by 2025.

A range of break options to meet the diverse communities of Wales have been funded through this programme. These aim to improve carer resilience and wellbeing and to support the sustainability of the carer’s caring relationship.
