Shared Care Scotland has launched a unique Scotland and UK-wide on-line directory of short break and respite services covering all forms of service including, for example: home-based and residential based respite, family placements, befriending, holiday breaks and accessible guest houses and hotels. 
In time, we hope the directory will provide a one-stop-shop where carers, care recipients and health and social care staff will be able to search for a suitable short break service according to location, age and care needs.
