    The Short Breaks for Carers: Capacity & Sustainability national conference takes place on 18 April 2023 at the William Quarrier Conference Centre, Govan, Glasgow.

    The Conference will consider the policy landscape, existing levels of short-breaks provision, the sustainability of the market and levels of unmet need. It will seek to take the debate forward by identifying future needs and investment opportunities to create a short-breaks market that will meet carers’ needs into the future. The Conference is being hosted by Quarriers, Sense Scotland and Shared Care Scotland. Delegates will hear from speakers from the Scottish Government, Health & Social Care Partnerships, the Care Inspectorate, the third sector – and carers themselves.

    In order to cover costs, the following rates will apply for delegates:

    • Carers and people they support: Free
    • Third sector: £20 per person
    • Public sector: £40 per person
