GroceryAid respite care match funding scheme

GroceryAid has partnered with Revitalise to provide match funding for grants from GroceryAid for respite breaks with Revitalise.

Revitalise is a charity that provides respite care in a holiday setting for disabled people and their carers. GroceryAid currently offers an annual £300 respite break to beneficiaries enrolled on its Carers Programme. As a result of the collaboration, Revitalise have offered to match this £300 grant, if a Revitalise break is booked, bringing the total grant available up to £600.

Mandi Leonard, Welfare Director at GroceryAid said, "We are delighted at Revitalise's offer to match this respite grant. Revitalise offer tailored breaks catering to the needs of carers and their dependents, allowing some much-needed time to wind down. We hope this new partnership helps to raise awareness in the industry of the specialist services available to carers."

Commenting on the opportunity to work alongside GroceryAid, Revitalise CEO Chris Simmonds said: "We are delighted to be working with GroceryAid to provide support to people from across the whole of the grocery industry. For over 50 years we've supported disabled people and carers through the provision of our respite holidays and we passionately believe that the opportunity to take a break should be accessible to everyone. This opportunity means that we have the potential to reach even greater numbers of people in need of a break, something I am very excited about."
