Personalised care plans

We understand that everybody’s care needs are different, so when you make a booking, we ask a series of questions to get an overview of your medical conditions and establish which Care Support Package suits you. Before your break, our nurses will phone to go through pre-assessment questions, identifying your exact needs and addressing any concerns. You tailored care plan will be confirmed on arrival at the centre, although we can be contacted before this point if further queries arrive.

In order to ensure as many people as possible can enjoy our breaks we fundraise to subsidise all our prices.

Nevertheless, we understand that funding a break may be difficult. There are a number of ways of making a Revitalise break more affordable. We hope the below information is useful, but if you have any questions you are very welcome to call us and discuss your needs on 0303 303 0145 (Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm).

Local Authority funding  

We can advise you on possible funding sources from your local authority.

Many local authorities fund a wide range of schemes to assist disabled people and carers. To find your local authority contact details, visit or look at their website. Most local authority websites have a 'Health and Social Care' section where you can find out what services are provided for disabled people and carers.

In addition, your local authority may be able to direct you to other services in your area which may be able to assist you.

External funding  

We may be able to put you in touch with other charities and organisations who may be able to provide funding.

Direct grants

On a limited basis we can provide funding towards the cost of your break from Revitalise's Joan Brander Memorial Fund.  We want to ensure this fund reaches a wide group of people, so grants are unlikely to cover the full cost of a break. There may also be funding available from other organisations such as The Victoria Convalescent Trust and the Florence Nightingale Aid in Sickness Trust. Please contact Sharon Stevens for more information - 0303 303 0145.

Paying by instalments  

If you are paying for your break yourself you can spread the cost over a period of months to help you budget.

Funding guides and resources

Carers UK has a useful Financial Help section on their website, as well as a range of guides to download.
