Care Breaks

As part of our National Wellbeing Breaks service we are offering individuals and couples with care needs the opportunity to apply for a subsidised Care Break at one of our preferred Care Hotels which provide a full range of holiday activities alongside a package of personal and/or nursing care.

To apply for a Care Break the Fund will need to know what assistance you are receiving from your Local Authority. If you do not already have a Care Plan please contact your Local Authority and request they carry out an assessment of your care needs.

If you already have an assessment of your care needs please contact your caseworker to arrange a visit to complete an application form or contact our support line on 0800 169 2942 who can put you in touch with the relevant case working organisation.

Current locations include:

Calvert Trust in Kielder Forest

The uniquely beautiful and uplifting Kielder is home to Europe's largest working forest, northern Europe’s largest man-made lake and is the official home of the UK’s darkest night skies.

Leuchie House

Leuchie House, just outside North Berwick in the stunning East Lothian countryside, provides caring short breaks for people and their families affected by long-term physical conditions, such as Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke and Parkinson's disease plus many other long term neurological conditions.

At Leuchie, the focus is on giving guests and their families the very best respite break experience. By providing the expert nursing and physio care guests need to manage their condition, those who stay at Leuchie are able to have a proper holiday and enjoy all the things that make it special for them.

Revitalise (*Closed for refurbishment until late 2022/early 2023*)

Our three fully accessible holiday centres, situated in Chigwell, Southampton and Southport are designed with your ease and comfort in mind.

Jubilee Lodge

Positioned at the fringes of Epping Forest, on the doorstep of the capital, Jubilee Lodge combines the rural attractions and seaside resorts of the South East, with the cultural hotspots and landmarks of London.

Netley Waterside House

Nestled on the sunny south coast, Netley Waterside House features a social lounge, bar and entertainment area, opening out onto a spacious terrace and sun lounge. Breathe in the fresh seaside air as the sun sets over Netley’s landscaped gardens, winding down to the tranquil reaches of Southampton Water.


Sitting beside the ever-picturesque Marine Lake in Southport, Sandpipers offers the ideal spot for a rejuvenating waterside holiday. Treat yourself to an energising dip in our heated hydrotherapy pool or take in relaxing views from the lakeside balcony – the perfect spot to unwind.
