Holiday Time
We have recently come across an organisation called After Umbrage who are offering what they believe is something special and unique to carers and would like to reach more carers. They offer short-term holiday accommodation free of charge for anyone caring for a person with a life-limiting condition at a cottage in Bath – please visit their website www.afterumbrage.org.uk for more information.
